MOSCOW, October 8 (Itar-Tass) — Damascus does not want to carry on war with Ankara and the October 3 incident is being investigated thoroughly, Syrian Ambassador to Russia Riyad Haddad said.
“As for the October 3 border incident, it is clear that we don’t want to attack Turkey. Syria thoroughly investigates the incident,” Haddad told Itar-Tass on Monday.
The diplomat recalled that Damascus expressed condolences to Ankara on the tragedy. “The Syrian and Turkish peoples are brothers and we don’t want to carry on war with Turkey. But, alas, Ankara is searching for means and reasons for interfering into our country’s internal affairs,” Haddad said.
As a result of artillery strikes on a house in the Turkish city of Akcakale, Sanliurfa Province, on Wednesday, October 3, five people were killed and another 13 people were injured. Turkey believes that artillery shells were fired at by units of the Syrian army. In response Turkey’s artillery delivered strikes on Syria.
