Egypt condemned on Saturday a suicide bomb attack in Iran which killed 27 Revolutionary Guards earlier this week.

In an official statement, the Egyptian foreign ministry denounced the terror attack which took place in Sistan and Baluchistan province and targeted a bus carrying Revolutionary Guards personnel.

“We offer our sincere condolences to the families of the victims, hoping for a speedy recovery for the injured. We stress the importance of joining international efforts to combat terrorism,” the statement concluded.

Iran has warned neighbouring Pakistan it will “pay a heavy price” for allegedly harbouring militants behind the attack.

The Iranian group Jaish Al-Adl (Army of Justice), which says it seeks greater rights and better living conditions for the Sunni ethnic minority the Baluchis, has claimed responsibility for the attack.
