Iran Committed to War on Terror, Minister Says after Attack on Police Station

The Iranian interior minister reaffirmed the country’s commitment to relentless war against terrorism after a terrorist attack on a police station in the southeastern city of Zahedan resulted in the martyrdom of two police forces.

Speaking to reporters on Sunday, Ahmad Vahidi said security forces in Zahedan, the capital of Sistan and Balouchestan Province, gave a harsh response to the terrorists during a deadly attack against a police station on Saturday that led to the killing of four armed terrorists and two police officers.

“What happened (in Zahedan) yesterday was a terrorist incident and in fact these men entered (the police station) as ordinary people and then carried out a terrorist act,” the interior minister said.

Vahidi urged the neighboring country of Pakistan to toughen its border control measures.

Police Chief of Sistan and Balouchestan Doustali Jalilian said on Saturday that the armed terrorists had tried to gain entry into the central area of police station Number 16 of Zahedan while disguising themselves as clients, Press TV reported.

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian expressed his condolences to the families of the victims and the personnel of the Law Enforcement Command of the Islamic Republic of Iran (FARAJA).

In a message addressed to Iran’s police chief, Ahmad Reza Radan, the foreign minister paid tribute to the numerous martyrs who have selflessly defended the country’s security.

Amirabdollahian highlighted the role of the martyrs in safeguarding the nation against the nefarious objectives of terrorists and their supporters.

He criticized the so-called advocates of human rights for remaining silent in the face of such heinous crimes, pointing out that their inaction exposes their true nature.
