It warned that the continuation of these attacks reflects a dangerous escalation and evidence of these terrorist militias seeking to undermine security and stability in the region with the support of Iran and in implementation of its subversive agenda, calling on the international community to quickly take an immediate and decisive stance to stop these repeated actions targeting civilians and civilian objects in a systematic and deliberate manner.
