Iran has condemned twin car bombings that killed 42 people in Tripoli, Lebanon, the official IRNA news agency reported on Saturday. Foreign ministry spokesperson Abbas Araqchi was quoted as saying he "strongly condemned the terrorist attacks" which occurred outside two mosques during weekly Muslim prayers on Friday.
He denounced "(Sunni Muslim extremist) groups who seek to sow division to undermine Lebanese national unity and the peaceful coexistence of different communities" in the country. The spokesperson said such people were playing into the hands of "the Zionists," in reference to Israel. (AFP)
