(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) RIYADH, Nov 11 (KUNA) -- Secretary General of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Abdullatif Al-Zayani on Saturday condemned strongly a blast, which targeted an oil pipeline in Bahrain and led to a big fire.
In a press statement, Al-Zayani described which the blast took place Friday as a "serious terror crime" which endangers the Kingdom's supreme interests and terrifies both citizens and residents.
He expressed his strong denouncement of targeting oil pipelines by terrorists, considering this as "a dangerous development in criminal methods adopted by the terrorist organizations which are supported and directed by Iran." Such crimes will not undermine the resolve of the wise leadership of the Kingdom of Bahrain and its insistence on maintaining security and stability, and eliminating all terrorist organizations from the society.
He lauded efforts by Bahrain's security apparatuses to control fire efficiently and at record time, and their measures taken to protect residents in the area of fire.
Al-Zayani voiced his full confidence that Bahrain's security apparatuses would uncover the circumstances of this cowardly terrorist act, the suspected elements and the bodies behind them.
Bahrain's interior ministry announced on Friday that an explosion took place in an oil pipeline, without causing casualties. (end) mdm.hm
