Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman condemned a terror attack against an educational center in western Kabul on Saturday that claimed more than 20 lives and injured scores more.
Releasing a statement, Saeed Khatibzadeh expressed hatred toward the terrorist attack that “targeted ordinary pupils and students in an educational center”, and condoled with the families of the victims, IRNA reported.
According to local media, 25 people were killed and more than 50 people were injured in the attack that took place at 16:30 local times.
Moreover, Iran’s Embassy in Afghanistan in a separate statement strongly condemned the terror attack by a sectarian group on a girls’ school in western Kabul, calling it an inhuman and un-Islamic move.
Such crimes will definitely not achieve their goals which is to form sectarian violence in Afghanistan, read the statement.
It is obvious that the legal and relevant authorities will take the necessary measures and criminals will be duly punished, it added.
According to Reuters, Kabul is on high alert since Washington announced plans last month to pull out all US troops by Sept. 11.
No group has claimed responsibility for this blast yet.
