Damascus, SANA- Syria said that violations of the truce in Aleppo and attacking safe residential neighborhoods in the cities of Aleppo and al-Mukharam in Homs province prove once again that the regimes of Riyadh, Ankara and Doha which stand behind terrorist organizations in Syria keep defying the UN Security Council resolutions.
Addressing two identical letters to UN Secretary-General and head of the UN Security Council of which SANA received a copy, Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said: “Armed terrorist groups breached a truce in Aleppo that culminated tough efforts to which the Syrian Arab Army has fully committed since Thursday morning May 5 2016 as agreed.”
The ministry explained that a few hours after the truce took effect, the armed terrorist groups shelled the safe residential neighborhoods in Aleppo city including al-Khalediya, al-Zahraa, al-Suleimaniyeh, Sallahu-Eddin , al-Azeeziya and al-Midan with heavy barrage of rocket shells, explosive gas cylinders (Hell cannon) and mortar shells, adding that these terrorist attacks on the residential neighborhoods and Dar al-Farah school resulted in killing three civilians, injuring others and causing massive devastation to private and public properties.
The ministry confirmed that the crime of violating the truce in Aleppo reveals the real face of the terrorist armed groups, adding that these terrorist groups which are backed by Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other countries have no other aim but to kill Syrians and destroy their country, yet some insist on calling them ‘moderate opposition.’
“On Thursday morning, May 5 2016, ISIS terrorist organization detonated a car and motorcycle bombs in the main square of al-Mukaram al-Fouqani city in Homs province, killing 12 civilians and injuring 40 others including children, women and elders,” added the ministry.
The ministry said these terrorist attacks add to a long series of terrorist attacks targeting several Syrian cities in implementation of the orders of the regimes in Riyadh, Ankara and Doha to undermine all efforts to stabilize the truce and shed the blood of the Syrian people in an obvious attempt to abort Geneva talks.
The Ministry affirmed that the terrorist attacks will not prevent Syria from fighting terrorism and working towards a political solution to the crisis through Syrian-Syrian dialogue which will lead to the elimination of terrorism and restoring security and stability.
Foreign and Expatriates Ministry concluded its letters by urging the UN Security Council and UN Secretary-General to condemn these terrorist crimes and assume their responsibility in preserving international peace and security by taking punitive action against regimes supporting and financing terrorism.
