MOSCOW, June 20, /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Foreign Ministry has offered its condolences to the families of those killed in a terror attack in the Syrian village of Hurra, reads a comment posted on the ministry’s official website.
On June 20, suicide bombers detonated a truck in the village of Hurra in the western Hama Province, killing 35 people and wounding 50. On Thursday, another act of terror left eight people dead and more than 40 wounded next to a school in the al-Nazha neighbourhood in the city of Homs.
“Tragic events in Hama and Homs once again raise an issue of the swift reviving of efforts aimed to find a political solution in Syria and highlight the necessity of joint actions against terrorist groups which are the main obstacle on the path to normal life in that country,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said in its comment.
“We offer our condolences to the families of killed and wish good health to the wounded,” it said. “We vehemently condemn any manifestations of terrorist activity, including extremists’ continuous attacks on peaceful civilians in Syria and neighbouring Iraq.
