Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Abbas Mousavi, in a statement on Friday, condemned the terrorist attacks on the police headquarters in Kandahar and the University of Kabul in Afghanistan.

RNA - The spokesman strongly denounced such “acts of aggression and inhuman methods”, and expressed sympathy for the Afghan government and nation, particularly the families of victims.  

He said the Afghan government and nation and all the ethnic, political and religious groups of that country will surely stand vigilant and united to continue their path towards peace and sustainable security.

The statement came after a massive suicide car bombing followed by gunfight at the police headquarters in the Southern Afghan city of Kandahar on Thursday killed at least 11 people and wounded at least 60 others.

The Taliban took responsibility for the attack. Qari Yosuf Ahmadi, the militant group's spokesman, said in a social media post that many of their fighters wearing suicide vest stormed the police headquarters after the bombing.

Known as the birthplace of the Taliban movement, Kandahar province witnessed relative peace for years under the fierce police chief late Gen. Abdul Raziq, who got killed in a Taliban-claimed attack in October last year.

Afghan media announced on Friday that an explosion near the University of Kabul has killed 4 and injured 16 others.
