The Foreign Ministry on Monday condemned the attack carried out by terrorist groups in the Iraqi province of Karbala, expressing hope that terrorism would be eradicated from the region.

Late on Sunday, five attackers armed with suicide vests, rifles and grenades killed at least 18 people in the Iraqi town of Ain al-Tamer, southwest of Baghdad, local officials said. In a statement, Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi said, “Takfiri terrorists commit such crimes and kill innocent people knowing that their time is up in Iraq,” Tasnim News Agency reported.

He expressed sympathy with the Iraqi government and people  as well as families of the victims of the inhumane act.

Qasemi said such blind and savage attacks are carried out by the terrorists after their repeated failures and setbacks in the war-torn Arab country.

He hoped that the Iraqi people would live in peace and security and strive for their country’s stability and reconstruction.
