UN Security Council condemns recent attack in Iran

United Nations, Aug 17 (Prensa Latina) The United Nations Security Council condemned the recent attack against a mosque in Iran and reminded that terrorism constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security.

On Wednesday, in a statement released here, the UN described as heinous and cowardly the reported attack on the Shah-e-Cheragh shrine in Shiraz on August 13.

Members stressed the need to hold the perpetrators, organizers, financiers and sponsors of these acts accountable and bring them to justice.

The text urged all states to cooperate actively with the Government of Iran, as well as with all other relevant authorities, in this regard.

The attack was claimed by the Islamic State and resulted in the loss of life of two Iranians and eight others were injured.

The Security Council reaffirmed the need for all states to combat by all means international refugee law, international humanitarian law, as well as threats to international peace and security caused by terrorist acts.

The August 13 attack is the second against the Shah-e-Cheragh shrine which was also the target of another terrorist act on October 26, 2022.

On that occasion, a member of the Islamic State stormed the shrine and fired on pilgrims, killing 13 people and wounding dozens more.
