MOSCOW, April 30 /ITAR-TASS/. The criminal activity of illegal armed groups against peaceful people in Syria has reached an unprecedented level over the past several days, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday, April 30.
“Dozens of peaceful people, including women and children, have fallen victim to barbaric terrorist attacks on residential quarters in Syrian cities and settlements carried out by militants from Jabhat al-Nusra, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, the Islamic Front and other radical groups associated with Al-Qaeda,” the ministry said.
“Terrorists use the same tactic as before: indiscriminate mortar and missile attacks, sniper fire, roadside bombs, and terrorist acts using vehciles stuffed with explosives and suicide bombers targeting mainly peaceful people,” it said.
The ministry urged all forces that can influence the situation in Syria to “assume a clear and unequivocal position in order to stop the bloody armed conflict in this country as soon as possible and achieve a settlement through a national dialogue without external interference”.
