SAEDNEWS: In a statement, President Rayeesi extended his condolences to the Iranian nation, specially the families of “devoted” police forces who fell victim to the attack in Rask County in Sistan and Balouchistan Province, claimed by the Pakistan-based Jaish ul-Adl terror group.
“The powerful security and law enforcement forces must identify the perpetrators and orderers of this heinous crime as quickly as possible so that they can be punished for their disgraceful act,” the statement said.
The president blamed the “stooges of the world arrogance” for what he called a “cowardly and indiscriminate” terror attack.
The deadly attack has drawn condemnations from various Iranian officials, and also from Pakistan, where the group is based.
Iran’s Parliament Speaker Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf called for a swift response to the attack.
He said that Iran’s adversaries have many times tried to break the will of the Iranian nation through such futile acts, but they should know such acts will be responded to with "harsh punishment."
