The Foreign Ministry condemned the recent terror attacks in Lebanon that killed and injured a number of people.

The ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi on Tuesday expressed condolences to the families of victims of the terror attacks, Tasnim News Agency reported.

He reaffirmed Iran’s support for the Lebanese government, people and army in the campaign against terrorism.

“The Islamic Republic once again emphasizes the necessity for vigilance and solidarity among regional governments and nations from different ethnicities and religions in the fight against terrorism.”

The spokesman called for “more serious efforts” by the international community in battling terrorism, its origins, sponsors and supporters.

At least five people were killed and nearly two dozen were wounded in deadly bombings near the border with crisis-stricken Syria early on Tuesday.

The raids were conducted in six areas of the hilly eastern region of Baalbek.

It came only hours after eight people sustained injuries when three bombers riding motorcycles blew themselves up in the center of the Christian village of al-Qaa near the border with Syria.

Earlier on Monday, five people lost their lives and 15 others suffered injuries when four bombers targeted the same village.
