Raisi urges Taliban to protect Afghan people from terrorist attacks
After the recent terrorist bombings in several Afghan regions, the Iranian president called on the Afghan authorities in a statement to preserve the lives of Afghans and stand up to the criminals who attack mosques and schools.
Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi stressed that it is the duty of the rulers of Afghanistan to preserve the lives of all Afghans, calling on the rulers of this country to stand in the face of criminals who attack fasting worshipers and kill them with contempt.
Following the recurrence of terrorist explosions targeting schools and mosques in various parts of Afghanistan, which resulted in the death and injury of a large number of Afghans, President Raisi issued a message warning of the spread of threats against the Afghan people and other countries in the region.
He condemned the recent terrorist assaults in Afghanistan and emphasized the importance of ensuring the safety of all Afghans, particularly at schools, mosques, and religious institutions.
The Iranian president said in a speech during the ceremony commemorating Laylat al-Qadr yesterday that it was thought that the fate of the Palestinian people would be decided at the negotiating tables, but what is happening today is the fate of Palestine is crystallizing today at the hands of the Palestinians.
“We are now witnessing crimes, similar to those perpetrated by Daesh members, being committed against Muslims and worshippers at the al-Aqsa Mosque compound as well as in mosques in Afghanistan,” Raisi said.
Recent days in Afghanistan have witnessed terrorist attacks in several regions, targeting schools, and mosques, including in the capital, Kabul, five days ago, and Mazar-i-Sharif, and Kunduz, two days ago, resulting in the death of a large number of people, including women and children.
