MOSCOW, June 14 (Itar-Tass) - Moscow cannot understand the decision of some countries to offer aid to the Syrian opposition on the so-called “liberated territories,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Friday.
“On June 12, gunmen from al-Nusra killed upon the appeal of one of Jihad authorities 60 civilians, including women and children in the Shiite village of Hatla in the eastern Syrian province of Deir al-Zor,” the diplomat said
“’Warriors of the faith” posted the video footage of that atrocious massacre on the Internet clearly with an aim to defy the whole Shiite community. The Syrian government turned to the UN Security Council with an appeal to denounce the massacre in Hatla,” he said.
“Against this background, the decisions of some countries to help the opposition in Syria on the so-called ‘liberated territories’ cause at least incomprehension. One would not want to think “that territories are ‘liberated’ the way it was done in Hatla,” he stressed.
