Iranian Resistance Strongly Condemns Barcelona Terrorist Attack

Published on .

The Iranian Resistance strongly condemns Thursday’s brutal attack in Barcelona that killed 13 and wounded dozens of innocent and defenseless people. The Iranian Resistance offering its deepest condolences and sympathies to the families of the victims of this terrorist attack wishes quick recovery for those wounded in the attack.

Killing innocent and defenseless people under any pretext is a crime against humanity and has nothing to do with Shiite or Sunni Islam. It sharply contradicts the teachings of this great religion. The perpetrators of such crimes are the worst enemies of God, humanity and Islam.

Recurrence and continuation of these antihuman crimes which have targeted large parts of the world is the unquestionable product of the expansion of fundamentalism and extremism under the name of Islam, which has become a major threat to peace and tranquility in the world since the advent of religious fascism in Iran. Breaking out of this cycle of crimes and carnage can be achieved only by concentrating on the main source of fundamentalism, namely the anti-human regime ruling Iran that is called the Godfather of Daesh by the Iranian people.
