UNITED NATIONS, October 29. /TASS/. UN Security Council has condemned Friday’s shelling of the Russian Embassy in Damascus and reminded about the principle of inviolability of diplomatic missions outlined in the Vienna conventions. In the statement adopted on Saturday, UN Security Council members noted the inadmissibility of such incidents.
According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, terrorists fired two mortar shells at the Russian Embassy in Damascus on Friday. One shell exploded near the entrance to the diplomatic mission. No one was injured, but material damage has been inflicted on the building, and four cars were damaged as well. Fire was opened from the Jobar district which remains under control of anti-government forces.
Russian Foreign Ministry’s official spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said that Moscow hopes to see appropriate international reaction to the incident.
