Iran’s Foreign Ministry condemned a deadly bomb attack on buses carrying people from two Shia-majority villages in Syria’s northwestern province of Idlib.

Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi voiced his condemnation on Saturday while offering condolences to the Syrian government and nation, Press TV reported.

At least 100 people were killed in the terrorist blast, which hit al-Rashideen District on the western outskirts of Aleppo as buses were stopping at a checkpoint.

The buses were evacuating residents of Kefraya and al-Foua villages in accordance with an agreement between the Syrian government and foreign-sponsored militant groups last month.

“The shameful criminal act by takfiri terrorists in the cowardly attack on buses carrying the people of al-Foua and Kefraya in Syria and killing tens of innocent and defenseless women and children have added to the atrocities carried out by terrorists and their supporters,” Qasemi said.

The spokesman denounced those who claim to be supporters of the Syrian nation, but refrain from commenting on such actions.
