DAMASCUS- Foreign and Expatriates Ministry sent messages on Monday, regarding the criminal terrorist acts which took place in Damascus and Aleppo during few days ago, to the Chairman of the UN Security Council, the UN Secretary-General, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), and Chairman of the Human Rights Council and the Higher Commissioner for Human Rights.
Syria`s Foreign Ministry said “terrorism targeted the secure and safe houses and stable suburbs in Damascus Saturday morning March 17, 2012 leading to 27 martyrs, including corpses and 140 wounded people, the condition of some of them is critical.”
The Ministry added “the bombing in Aleppo city came to complete the terrorist blood-shedding scheme carried out by terrorists and those who back them with money and weaponry.”
Syria`s Foreign Ministry messages also stressed that terrorism which is backed by regional and international sides has led to dozens of Syrian martyrs and wounded people, adding that this support by those sides which provide the armed terrorist groups with money and weapons is considered a flagrant violation of the UN Security Council resolutions on combating international terrorism and a violation of the international law and the international humanitarian law.
The Ministry also pointed out that the terrorist acts took place after millions of the Syrian people took to the streets on March 15, 2012 to affirm their support to the reforms carried out in Syria since the beginning of the events a year ago, and they took place after the UN envoy, Kofi Annan, started diplomatic efforts to reach a political solution to the Syrian crisis, far from foreign interference, and after Syria accepted the mission of Annan while the opposition rejected it.
Syria also stressed at the fact that “the suicide bombings are a violation of the Human Rights principles,” pointing out that combating terrorism necessitates that all states should refrain from funding it.
