Iranian Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Sadeq Larijani on Sunday condemned the terrorist attack on a number of Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) commanders this morning, and said such attacks could never leave a negative impact on the solidarity between the Shiites and Sunnis in Iran.
“Such cowardly acts will not have any effect on the trend of solidarity between the Shiites and Sunnis, rather they will strengthen the Islamic Republic of Iran’s will for establishing durable security and development,” Larijani said in a gathering of high-ranking judiciary officials here in Tehran today.
He also extended his condolences over the martyrdom of Lieutenant Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) ground force Brigadier General Nourali Shoushtari and Sistan and Balouchestan province’s IRGC commander General Mohammadzadeh in the Sunday morning terrorist attack.
A number of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) commanders who had traveled to the southeastern province of Sistan and Balouchestan to provide the ground for the ‘Shiite-Sunni Tribes’ Solidarity Conference’ were martyred in the terrorist attack.
During the attack, about 29 people, including IRGC commanders and also a number of tribal leaders of the region were martyred.
Larijani urged all the law enforcement, security and judiciary forces to keep vigilant to defuse enemies’ plots which, he said, aim to harm the security of the country through such terrorist attacks.
