US Department of State Condemns Bombing of Iranian Embassy

Iranian president Hassan Rouhani just retweeted the following condemnation of this morning’s bombing of the Iranian embassy in Beirut:

CNN reports that responsibility for the bombing has been claimed a Sunni Syrian jihadist organization in retaliation for Iran’s support of Hezbollah operations in Syria. At least 23 people are reported dead and another 147 wounded.

I just thought the tweet worth noting given the recent tension and intense diplomacy surrounding Iran’s nuclear program.
