Iran’s Intelligence Ministry: 35 arrested over Kerman terrorist attack

Iran’s Intelligence Ministry says 35 individuals have been arrested over involvement in the recent terrorist bombings in the southeastern city of Kerman.

The ministry, in its second statement on the incident on Thursday, said its forces are proceeding with a process to identify the perpetrators and masterminds of the twin suicide bombings as well as the people related to Takfiri terrorists inside and outside the country.

“So far, 35 people have been detained in the provinces of Kerman, Sistan and Baluchestan, Khorasan Razavi, Esfahan, Tehran and West Azarbaijan,” it explained.

It added that a number of the criminals involved in the tragedy have been also identified abroad and serious efforts are underway to pursue them.

The terrorist bombings, which were claimed by the Daesh (ISIS) terrorist group, occurred on January 3 near the burial site of Iran’s iconic anti-terror commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani during a ceremony marking the fourth anniversary of his martyrdom. The blasts left at least 94 people dead.

It is the ministry’s duty and it reserves the right to prosecute and bring to justice the criminals and all the agents outside the country who played a role in the massacring of dozens of innocent people in the terrorist blasts, said the statement.

It also emphasized that the ministry would not rest until the full realization of its goals.
