Gen. Mood: The explosions cause but the more of Suffering to the Syrians

(Omar al-Shaar | Dp-news)

DAMASCUS- Major General Robert Mood, chief of a UN observer mission in Syria, visited the site of two massive deadly “Terrorist” blasts that rocked Damascus on Thursday morning.

Press reports said earlier that Head of UNSMIS Monitors Gen. Robert Mood checked the explosions site in Damascus and spoke to reporters at place.

Gen. Mood declared “The explosions cause but the more of suffering to the Syrians.”

Gen. Mood, in a press statement at the site of the two explosions, called on all those who stand behind these explosions, whether they are inside Syria or outside, to realize that such explosions cause but the more of suffering to the Syrians, and that they should stop these heinous acts and give a chance to the Syrians to go forward in a peaceful direction without having the innocents being killed.


"This is yet another example of the suffering brought upon the people of Syria from acts of violence," the Norwegian general said.


"We, the world community, are here with the Syrian people and I call on everyone within and outside Syria to help stop this violence," he said, according to a statement.



General Robert Mood offered his heartfelt condolences to the Syrian people and to the bereaved families of the victims.



Mood surveyed the damage left by the explosions that took place during morning rush hour on a highway south of the capital and left dozens dead or wounded, according to state television.



Two strong explosions ripped through the Syrian capital Thursday, killing or wounding dozens of people and damaging a military intelligence building, officials said.

The blasts come despite a UN-backed ceasefire that went into effect on April 12 with the aim of ending 14 months of bloodshed in Syria.



Syria`s FM Spokesman Jihad Makdissi sent on Twitter “Today's Terrorist attack might be the strongest and bloodiest.”



Syrian state television blamed the explosions on "terrorists", the term used by authorities to refer to rebels seeking to overturn the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.

SANA says more than 40 people have been killed & more than 170 others injured in today's blasts in Damascus.



The attacks came a day after the Norwegian general escaped unharmed when a roadside bomb exploded as he led a team of UN observers into the southern flashpoint city of Daraa.

Ten Syrian soldiers escorting them were hurt in Wednesday's bombing, according to the latest reports.



In a press conference in Daraa on Wednesday, Maj. Gen. Robert Mood, Head of the UN observer mission in Syria, said that an explosive device went off as the UN observer mission team passed by, injuring one of the guards and a journalist.

Mood said "The explosion is an indication that reflects the violence in Syria.''

Gen. Mood considered that Syria's exit from the crisis has to be decided by the Syrians themselves, adding that all parties in Syria have to communicate for solving the crisis.

''We met the UN observers in Daraa who said they are welcomed by all, ''said Mood, adding that there are 70 observers in Syria to reach 100 in the next couple of days, vowing to convey the situation on the ground as it is.

On the report submitted by the UN envoy to Syria, Kofi Annan, to the UN Security Council, Mood on Wednesday said "We cannot comment since it was we who submitted the report based on our on-the-ground observations..I believe that the international community had a balanced view on the report."
