DAMASCUS, Apr. 17(Press Shia) – Syrian Foreign and Expatriates Ministry on Sunday called for unifying efforts of the international community to fight terrorism in coordination and full cooperation with the Syrian government, condemning the terrorist attack on Al-Fu’ah and Kafriya citizens and bringing supporters of terrorism to justice.
“In a heinous, criminal act which was planned to kill the largest number of children and women, terrorists detonated on Saturday a car bomb in an area that gathers buses and ambulances in Al-Rashideen region in West Aleppo to transport nearly 5,000 citizens from the terror-besieged towns of Al-Fu’ah and Kafriya ,” the Ministry said in two letters sent to the UN Secretary General and President of the UN Security Council.
It added that the coward attack claimed the lives of more than 120 children and women and injured hundreds, and caused massive material damage to the cars and buses.
The Ministry went on saying that the people of the two towns have suffered daily from a severe siege, starvation and shelling that did not stop, imposed by the terrorist groups for more than four consecutive years.
It affirmed that the terrorist bombing attack that targeted the people of Kefraya and al-Fouaa coincides with a feverish campaign of armed terrorist groups that unveils their bankruptcy in front of the success of the national reconciliation being carried out in an attempt to make the agreement of the four cities a failure.
The Ministry said “this coward attack comes as a response by the terrorists and their masters to the achievements made by the Syrian Arab Army and its allies and their success in confronting the terrorist organizations of Jabhat al-Nusra and ISIL and their affiliated entities in many Syrian areas.”
“The Government of the Syrian Arab Republic reiterates the urgent need to unify the efforts of the international community to combat terrorism in full coordination and cooperation with the Syrian government and to stop attempts of misleading and ignoring the fact of the priority of combating terrorism to restore security and stability in Syria and the region as a whole,” the Ministry said.
The Ministry concluded its letters by calling on the UN to condemn this criminal attack, punish their perpetrators and bring the governments that support terrorist organizations, on top of them, Turkey, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, France, the US and Britain to justice, and force them carry out UN relevant resolutions, particularly no. 1267, 1373, 2170, 2178, 2199 and 2253.
