MOSCOW, April 01. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia considers any attempts to justify terrorists’ crimes absolutely unacceptable, the Russian Foreign Ministry has said.
“The UN Security Council has to discuss the attack on the Armenian-inhabited village of Kessab in Syria and give its assessment,” the ministry says.
“We condemn extremists’ actions in Syria. We believe that the Syrian government and the opposition should join efforts to eradicate terrorism on the Syrian land,” the ministry says.
“The world community and human rights organisations have voiced concern over the situation in the Armenian-populated town of Kessab, Syria’s north-west. The town was attacked by al-Qaeda-linked extremist groups of Jabhat al Nusra and Ahrar al Sham,” the ministry says.
“The only reason for attacking seven hundred families and forcing them to leave their homes is that they were loyal to the Syrian government,” it says.
