The Iranian Foreign Ministry has strongly condemned terrorist car bombings in the Syrian capital Damascus that killed almost 90 people and injured nearly 250 others.

The ministry said in a statement that the Iranian government and nation voices sympathy with the relatives of the victims as well as the Syrian nation and government.
The statement said that “ill-wishers of the Syrian nation are worried about the return of calm and stability to the country and view national reconciliation against their aims and desires.”

It further insisted that through persistent terror acts, the foreign-sponsored terrorist elements are attempting to maintain a fearful setting in the country and block the realization of political reforms and improved stability and security across the nation.
On Thursday, a powerful car bomb exploded in the Syrian capital’s Mazra’ah residential neighborhood near the Russian Embassy and the headquarters of the ruling Baath Party, reportedly killing 53 and injuring 250 more in yet another bid blamed on al-Qaeda-linked terror groups, armed and sponsored from abroad.
The attack was the deadliest to hit Damascus since the outbreak of violence in Syria nearly two years ago.
The statement further called on all groups and political parties interested in a secure and stable Syria to exercise vigilance and resistance against such inhumane actions, adding that it expects all regional and trans-regional countries to join and support the national reconciliation process in the key Middle Eastern nation.
Syria has been experiencing foreign-fueled unrest since March 2011. Many people, including large numbers of security forces, have been killed in the turmoil.
