TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs strongly condemned the recent terrorist attacks in central province of Hama and eastern province of Deir Ezzor that led to the killing of several people and wounding of dozens more.
In the strongest terms, the ministry condemned the terrorist attacks that targeted a bus in Kabajib area and fuel tanks and civilian cars on al-Salamiyah-Athria road which claimed the lives of a number of civilians and soldiers and wounded many others.
On Sunday evening, terrorists launch an attack against a bus in Kabajib area in Deir Ezzor and another attack against fuel tankers as well as civilian vehicles in al-Salamiyah district in Hama.
The attacks were later claimed by the Daesh (ISIL or ISIS) Takfiri terrorist group.
“The Syrian Arab Republic condemns in the strongest terms the cowardly terrorist attacks that targeted a bus in Kabajib area on the road between Palmyra and Deir Ezzor, as well as fuel tankers and civilian cars on the Athria-Salamiyah road, which claimed the lives of a number of civilian and military martyrs and wounded many others,” the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said in a statement to on Monday.
Daesh, which once controlled large parts of Syria, was finally defeated and lost all of its urban strongholds in the Arab country. However, its remnants every so often carry out sporadic attacks against both civilians and Syrian troops.
The statement, carried by Syria’s official SANA news agency, added that the “heinous attacks” coincided with the frequent Israeli attacks on the Syrian land, which confirmed once again the existence of a connection between the terrorist groups and the Tel Aviv regime.
It stressed that a connection is evident between the terror groups and their sponsors in the West, particularly the United States.
It also blamed Turkey, which has launched cross-border invasions against the Arab country, occupied parts of northern Syria, and supports anti-Damascus militant groups.
The Syrian foreign ministry said that all these foreign-backed terror groups and their Western sponsors aim to prolong the crisis in Syria, impede the return of security and stability and increase the suffering of the Syrians through terrorism and unilateral, illegal and coercive measures.
