BEIRUT, February 11 (Itar-Tass) — The Syrian Foreign Ministry sent last night a message to the United Nations, the Islamic Cooperation Organisation and the Arab League, concerning the terror acts in Aleppo.
“The above terror acts are in line with the anti-Syrian campaign, backed and funded by some countries in the region and provoked by well-known mass media, nudging armed gangs to murders of civilians,” says the statement of the Syrian Foreign Ministry as quoted by the SANA news agency.
“These crimes were committed by terrorists, backed by Western and Arab countries which do not fulfill their international obligations and seek to undermine security of Syria and its citizens.”
The Foreign Ministry emphasized that Syria had the full right to protect its citizens from terror and violence and demands that the UN Security Council fulfill earlier resolutions on struggle against terrorism.
“We demand that countries, sheltering gunmen in their territories, should extradite them to Syrian authorities in compliance with international laws on struggle against terrorism as well as stop their support and funding in conformity with resolutions of the UN Security Council on struggle against terrorism,” the document says.
As a result of several terror acts, 30 people were killed and 235 were wounded in the Syrian city of Aleppo last Friday. Responsibility for this was taken by the so-called Free Syrian Army.
Several blasts, including in the central areas of Marja and Sahhur, thundered in that city, located 340 kilometres from Damascus. Terrorists also attacked the headquarters of military intelligence and the barracks of interior troops in the district of Dummar-el-Basil wherefrom the greatest number of casualties were received.
