Kerman terror attack

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution has vowed a strong response to both perpetrators and masterminds of deadly terrorist bombings that targeted civilians in the city of Kerman. In a message, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said the callous criminals could not tolerate the people's love and enthusiasm for visiting the resting place of their great commander, Martyr Qassem Soleimani. The message came hours after twin blasts killed nearly 100 Iranians and injured over 200 others, who were marking the fourth assassination anniversary of Lieutenant General Soleimani. Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi has also vowed that perpetrators of the attack will pay a heavy price for this horrible crime.

Slamming Iran terror attack 

Strong condemnations are pouring in from world’s political leaders over the deadly terrorist bombings that targeted Iranian civilians in the southeastern city of Kerman. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres vehemently condemned the blasts, which left hundreds of people dead and wounded. Russian President Vladimir Putin also slammed what he called terrorism in all its forms. Condemning the blasts, Turkish President Rejeb Tayyib Erdogan said Turkey stands by Iran in the fight against terrorism. The European Union also blasted the bombings as an act of terror, stressing that perpetrators must be held accountable. Iraq's top Shia cleric Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani decried the killing of innocent people in Iran, while condoling with the families of the victims. Yemen’s Ansarullah movement said the explosions were carried out due to Iran's crucial role in supporting the resistance front in Palestine and Lebanon.

Israel genocide in Gaza 

The United Nations' top court is to hear submissions next week from South Africa and Israel, after Pretoria opened a case for the Zionist regime's genocidal acts in Gaza. South Africa has asked the International Court of Justice to urgently order Israel to stop its onslaught on Gaza. The South African application, filed last Friday, is related to the regime's violations of its obligations under the Genocide Convention. Israel has rejected the case. South Africa will present its arguments next Thursday, while Israel is set to counter Pretoria’s case on Friday. The ICJ is expected to hand down its ruling on the request for emergency measures within weeks. The court’s decisions are legally binding, but it has little power to enforce them.
