MOSCOW, November 28 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow has strongly condemned new acts of terrorism in Syria, the Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday, November 28.
It said that none of the Russian citizens had not been injured or killed by the bomb blasts.
“A series of large acts of terrorism occurred in the city of Jaramana, southeast of the Syrian capital. Two suicide bombers in mined cars blew themselves up on the central square of the city. According to the Syrian Interior Ministry, 34 people died as a result of the act of terrorism, the remains of another 10 people who cannot be identified were found, and 83 persons received injuries of varying degree. Homemade explosive devices went off in two other districts of this city, causing serious material damage to the nearby residential buildings,” the ministry said.
No Russian citizens were affected by the explosions, it stated.
“We condemn in the strongest possible terms these new crimes of terrorism that have no justification. We express deep sympathy to the families of those killed and wounded,” the ministry said.
“Such inhuman actions are traditional methods employed by international terrorist organisations such as Al-Qaeda. Their purpose is to undermine any effort to stabilise the situation in Syria and overcome the crisis by peaceful political means,” the Foreign Ministry said.
