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.
