Intelligence Minister Seyyed Mahmoud Alavi and the head of Lebanon's main security apparatus held talks on ways of boosting cooperation between the two countries in the campaign against terrorism.

In the meeting, Alavi and Major General Abbas Ibrahim, the head of Lebanon's Directorate of General Security, explored avenues for cooperation between the two countries in the fight against terrorism, Tasnim News Agency reported on Tuesday.

The minister emphasized that Israel is the only regime that benefits from terrorist acts in the Middle East and added that Iran's Intelligence Ministry is ready to cooperate with Lebanon to root out terrorism in the region.

Alavi also expressed condolences to the Lebanese people and government over the death of dozens of people in a recent terrorist attack near Beirut.

Major General Ibrahim said Takfiri terrorism and Israel are "two sides of the same coin."

A Takfiri accuses followers of some Islamic sects of heresy.

The Lebanese official underlined that terrorism and Zionism should be confronted simultaneously.

On November 12, two large explosions rocked a security post killing 44 people and injuring nearly 240 others on Hussaineya Street in the crowded Borj al-Barajneh neighborhood in the southern suburb of Beirut.

The so-called Islamic State terrorist group claimed the Beirut bombings.
