Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has sympathized with Pakistan over a deadly attack on a school in the country, saying Tehran is ready to work with Islamabad in the fight against terrorism.

In a message to Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday, Rouhani offered condolences to the Pakistani government and the nation over the tragic incident, which left more than 140 people killed.

“This incident proved once again that countering violence and extremism, and uprooting terrorism need firm determination and willpower by the international community as well as all regional governments,” Rouhani added, stressing that Tehran is ready to cooperate with Islamabad in anti-terror fight.

In one of the bloodiest attacks in Pakistan's history, a group of gunmen reportedly dressed in military uniforms, stormed the Army Public School in Peshawar on Tuesday morning, going from classroom to classroom, shooting students and teachers.

The Pakistani military said at least 141 people, 132 of them children, lost their lives in the attack. More than 100 others were injured.

The death toll, however, does not include the terrorists who attacked the school. All seven attackers were killed in the operation.

The militant group Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it was carried out in retaliation for an ongoing Pakistani military offensive against the militants.
