Iran categorically blasted terrorists’ horrifying crimes in Damascus which claimed lives of dozens of innocent civilians.
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi strongly condemned the "heinous and shameful” terrorist attacks.
"Indiscriminate assassinations, carnage and spilling the blood of innocent people, including women and children, are the last resort of the desperate and miserable terrorists who have lost their control more than ever following their repeated failures in different fields,” he noted.
"Terrorists and their overt and covert supporters know well that they are on the threshold of more failures and on the verge of ruin and undoubtedly full collapse,” Qassemi stated.
Twin bombs targeting Shiite pilgrims killed 46 people in Damascus, most of them Iraqis, on Saturday in one of the bloodiest attacks in the Syrian capital.
A roadside bomb detonated as a bus passed and a suicide bomber blew himself up in the Bab Al Saghir area, which houses several Shiite mausoleums that draw a large number of pilgrims.
