MOSCOW, November 13, 13:58 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia decisively condemns terrorist acts against Syria’s civilians and indiscriminate strikes of Damascus’s residential quarters, the Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Wednesday following a recent mortar strike in Damascus.
“According to our information, of late the number of mortar strikes in Damascus’s different districts carried out by illegal armed formations of the Syrian opposition has evidently increased,” the ministry said. “As a result of militants’ criminal actions against the capital’s civilians the quarters mainly populated by Christians were especially hard hit. According to media reports, mortar attacks on a school and a bus carrying pupils killed a total of nine children. Other 27 people received wounds of varying severity.”
“We decisively denounce terrorist acts against Syria’s civil population and indiscriminate attacks on Damascus’s residential areas,” the ministry said. “We have an impression that activation of extremists is targeted at disrupting in this responsible moment the preparation for convening an international conference on Syria dubbed as Geneva II before the end of the year.”
In this respect the Russian Foreign Ministry “has once again insistently calls on all those, who can exert influence on militants, to do this within the framework of the international community’s collective efforts aimed at stopping any violence in Syria.
