Damascus, SANA-Syria complained to the UN over the recent terrorist carnage in the central province of Hama.
Over 60 civilians, mostly women and children, were slaughtered or shot dead and many others injured on Tuesday in a terrorist assault against al-Mabouja village in al-Salamieh countryside in Hama province. The assailants are also holding a number of the village’s locals hostage.
In two identical letters addressed to the UN Secretary-General and Head of the UN Security Council, the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry urged the international community to honor its obligations in fighting terrorism and extremist groups by cooperating and coordinating with the Syrian government to fight this “dangerous scourge.”
The perpetrators of the massacre are the same ones that some states like to dub “moderate opposition” in an attempt to cover their crimes which would not have been possible without the direct support provided for them by countries which unabashedly claim to be Syria’s friends.
The ministry said that the massacres and crimes against humanity that terrorists are committing in Syria make it imperative for peace-loving countries to take punitive measures against the countries supporting and financing terrorist organizations.
The letters concluded by affirming that Syria is bent on fighting terrorism and protecting its citizens, urging the UN Security Council to enforce its counter-terrorism resolutions and take firm line against violators.
