Damascus, SANA – Syria strongly condemned the heinous crime committed by terrorist groups against Egyptian citizens in Libya, a crime which shows the true nature of these organizations.

The crime in question is the murder of 21 Egyptian by beheading at the hands of ISIS members, which was shown in a video released by the terrorist organization on Sunday.

An official source at the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry told SANA that this crime constitutes further proof of the barbaric nature of such organizations and the threat they pose to the safety and future of the people and countries of the region and the entire world.

The source said that this threat requires that all countries committed to combating terrorism – particularly Syria and Egypt – band together to confront terrorism, extremism, and the Takfiri mentality and implement Security Council resolutions on stopping the financial and logistic support for terrorism.

The source concluded by offering the sincerest condolences on behalf of the Ministry to the families of the victims and to the people of Egypt.
