TEHRAN, Feb. 08 (Press Shia) – Iran has strongly condemned the suicide bomb attack outside the Afghan Supreme Court in Kabul which killed at least 21 people and wounded many other innocent civilians on Tuesday.

Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Ghasemi while voicing strong condemnation over the deadly terror attack in Kabul, expressed his condolences and deep sympathy with the government of Afghanistan and the families of the victims.

“Terrorism is the major security issue of the Middle East and the world that has targeted the peace and security of all countries and nations without any discrimination,” Ghasemi said.

He went on to underscore the need for increased efforts and all-out cooperation from all regional states and the international community for fighting terrorism.

At least 21 people were killed and as many as 40 others wounded Tuesday in Kabul when a suicide bomber blew himself up near a gate at the Afghan Supreme Court. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, which bore signs of similar attacks by the Taliban. 

The attack came just a few days after Afghanistan was hit with heavy snow and avalanche which killed at least 50 people and left many others missing.
