Iran’s FM: Terror attack in Chabahar not to go unpunished


 Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif gave an assurance that Thursday’s terrorist attack in the country’s southeastern port city of Chabahar will not go unanswered.

In a post on his Twitter account on Thursday evening, Zarif said, “Foreign-backed terrorists kill and wound innocents in Chabahar. As we've made clear in the past, such crimes won’t go unpunished.”

He also made a reference to Iran’s past measures in retaliation for hostile attacks, noting, “In 2010, our security services intercepted and captured extremists en route from UAE.”

“Mark my words: Iran WILL bring terrorists and their masters to justice,” the Iranian minister underlined.

On Thursday morning, an explosive-laden vehicle attacked the police headquarters in Chabahar, killing two sentries and injuring a number of other people, including passersby.
