SYRIA DENOUNCES MASSACRE OF CIVILIANS BY TERRORIST GROUPS
The Syrian Foreign Ministry denounced at the United Nations the massacre committed by terrorist groups two days ago in a neighbourhood of Damascus, in which 44 people were killed and 35 others were wounded, television networks reported today.
In letters sent to the United Nations General Secretariat and its Security Council, the government stated that the new criminal attack with a missile occurred on Tuesday against a market on the Kashkol neighbourhood, in the suburb of Damascus.
This action coincided with an attack with mortars also launched by extremist groups from the Eastern Ghouta region, east of Damascus, against the Amara neighbourhood, which wounded 10 citizens and caused considerable property damage in the area, the document stated.
After explaining that this and other evidence demonstrate the continuous attacks of the radical bands against civilian populations in Damascus, the Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates considered that the Western countries consider such terrorist groups as ‘moderate armed groups’.
The text also noted that those Western states, which hold sessions at the United Nations to defend terrorist groups, remain again silent facing their excesses and armed attacks against the civilian population.
After describing as inhuman and immoral the attitude of the western states against the violent acts of terrorist groups, the Foreign Ministry claimed the right of this Arab country to safeguard its citizens and put an end to the bloodshed.
Syria has lived since March 2011 a war imposed by extremist groups, supported by Western countries, in which more than 500,000 people, including women, children and the elderly have killed, according to the United Nations and independent bodies.
