Iran rejected as “baseless” a recent allegation by Bahrain that the Islamic Republic was involved in a July bombing on the kingdom’s eastern island of Sitra.

“Those exporting terrorism and the culture of violence are so notorious that no one will be duped into (believing) such accusations,” said Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham on Thursday.

In a statement the same day, the Bahraini Interior Ministry announced that authorities had arrested five people in connection with the July bombing in Sitra, accusing the Islamic Republic of involvement in the attack.  

Afkham said Bahrain “ineptly” seeks to move against the constructive and diplomatic trend created following the widely welcomed agreement between Iran and major powers on Tehran’s nuclear program, Press TV reported.

The July 28 bombing in Sitra, south of the capital Manama, targeted a bus carrying policemen killing two police and wounding six others.
