South Africa condemns the Twin Terror Attack in Tehran

The South African Government has noted with shock and dismay the news of a twin terrorist attack in the Iranian capital on Wednesday (07 June 2017). We condemn in the strongest possible terms this cruel act that left thirteen innocent people dead and forty-two injured.

Terrorism in all its forms and from whichever quarter cannot be condoned. We join the clarion call for the total isolation and eradication of all terror groups. They have no place among the civilised nations of the world.

The South African people join their Iranian brothers and sisters in mourning the violent deaths of their compatriots. Our thoughts are also with the bereaved families that found themselves under this dark cloud whilst observing the holy month of Ramadan.

Enquiries: Mr Clayson Monyela, 082 884 5974
