MOSCOW, May 27 (Itar-Tass) —— The causes of the tragic events in al-Holeh, Syria, must be investigated thoroughly, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said on Sunday.
“The tragic events in Syria and the dozens of deaths deserve condemnation. Yet we must thoroughly study their reasons,” he microblogged on the Twitter.
“There is information that the injuries could not have been sustained in artillery fire. Let us wait for an objective report of the UN mission,” Gatilov said.
The situation will be the subject of the Sunday briefing of UN Observation Mission in Syria head Gen. Robert Mood.
Russia requested the briefing, as the majority of media reports covering the al-Holeh tragedy put the blame on the Syrian armed forces, which allegedly used heavy armaments in bombarding the town.
The French-British draft statement on Syria posted at the UN Security Council strongly condemned the use of heavy armaments by the Syrian army in shooting at residential areas and murders of dozens of men, women and children and injuries of hundreds of people confirmed by UN observes.
