Tehran interim Friday Prayer Leader Hojjatoleslam Kazem Seddiqi has condemned the terrorist operations in the city of Zahedan, southeastern Iran, and has named the US as the main perpetrator behind this act of terrorism.ÂReferring to two explosions in front of city of Zahedan’s Jameh Mosque on Thursday night, in which according to latest reports 27 people have been martyred and 169 others have been wounded, Tehran interim Friday Prayer leader said that once again the US committed another crime through its mercenaries.
