Iran condemns Daesh terror attack in Paris
Iran has condemned a deadly Daesh shooting attack that hit Paris ahead of French presidential elections, calling on all world countries to join hands and help eradicate the threat of terrorism “with strong determination.”
According to Press TV, in a Friday statement, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said Western support for “criminal terrorists” and its double standards in dealing with the issue of terrorism emboldened the terrorists to launch yet another attack at the heart of Europe.
The assault served as a poignant reminder of the Daesh terror strikes hitting the French capital over the past years, which claimed the lives of dozens of people. The latest attack came three days before the first round of balloting in France’s tense presidential election.
The terror attack set off a chorus of condemnations from French presidential candidates as well as several world countries including Italy, Australia and the US.
