Syria Urges UN's Action against Terrorism after Attack Near Aleppo
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - The Syrian Foreign Ministry urged the UN Security Council to join forces with Damascus in the fight against terrorism amid an attack near the Syrian city of Aleppo.
The Syrian Foreign Ministry has sent two identical letters to the United Nations and the UN Security Council (UNSC) on Sunday, urging the organizations and the international community in general to join forces with Damascus in the fight against terrorism following an attack near the Syrian city of Aleppo, Sputnik reported.
On Saturday, a suicide attacker detonated a car bomb in the Rashidin neighborhood of Aleppo near a convoy of buses, which were carrying civilians evacuated from the Syrian Shiite towns of Foua and Kefraya, claiming lives of at least 70 people and injuring over 100 as a result.
“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 Syrian foreign ministry said in the letters, as quoted by the Sana news agency.
