MOSCOW, February 10 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian citizens were not hurt in terror attacks in Aleppo, Syria, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Friday.
“Two car bombs [planted on a van and a sedan] were blasted near a Syrian security service building. Shortly after that a suicide bomber blasted himself at a Syrian army draft office. Another car bomb blasted near a draft office after that,” the ministry said. “Militants opened gunfire on the city’s central square and in a residential area in southeastern Aleppo. Judging by reports, 25 people are dead and more than 150 are wounded.”
According to the Russian consulate general, the attacks did not hurt Russian citizens. “The situation has normalized by now, and the protection of the Russian consulate general has been tightened,” the ministry said.
“Russia unwaveringly and strongly condemns all forms and manifestations of terrorism. There is no excuse for such methods. The organizers and perpetrators of the terror acts must be found and neutralized,” the ministry stressed.
It presented profound condolences to the families of the dead and wished the soonest recovery to the injured.
“We reaffirm the Russian position towards the soonest end of violence in Syria and the resolution of pressing items on the national agenda through the comprehensive inter-Syrian dialog between the authorities and the opposition without preconditions. We call on all the Syrian opposition groups inside and outside of the country to estrange themselves from those who seed violence and terror on the Syrian land,” the ministry said.
