UN must condemn terrorist attacks in Syria


The Syrian Foreign Ministry has called on the United Nations to condemn the terrorist attacks across the country, blaming armed groups for the continuation of criminal operations and the violence in Syria.

In two separate letters to the rotating presidency of the Security Council and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on Tuesday, the Syrian Foreign Ministry called on the world bodies to condemn the terrorist operations in Syria.

The Syrian Foreign Ministry said that terrorists flow into Syria mainly from some neighboring countries, particularly Turkey, and added that the Turkish government provides the terrorists with weapons, which they use to attack the Syrian people and commit terrorist acts inside Syria.

The Ministry said that armed groups and especially the al-Nusra Front are the perpetrators behind the terrorist attacks, in particular the recent attack in the province of Hama that killed tens of people.

At least 32 people were killed and more than 50 others were injured in a car bombing in the town of Salmiyeh in the Syrian province of Hama on January 21.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011, and many people, including large numbers of security forces, have been killed in the turmoil.

The Syrian government says the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the militants are foreign nationals.
