Syria blames recent bombings on "foreign-backed terrorists"


15:09, March 20, 2012

DAMASCUS, March 19 (Xinhua) -- Syria's foreign ministry on Monday blamed the suicide bombings that wrecked the country in the past two days on "takfiri terrorists" backed by "well known regional and international parties that had explicitly declared their support."

The ministry's remarks were made in its letters sent to the UN Security Council, the UN organization for Islamic cooperation and the UN human rights council about the suicide bombings in Damascus and northern Aleppo which killed at least 29 people.

"The falling of dozens of innocent Syrians is a result of the terrorism that is backed by external parties, which had overtly announced their financing and arming to the extremist groups, said the ministry.

It went on to say that "the takfiri terrorists and those who back them and overtly supply them with funds and weapons are continuing their terrorist acts in implementation of a conspiratorial plan targeting Syria, its people and institutions."

The ministry said those "terrorist acts" came in the wake of the diplomatic efforts exerted by the UN special envoy Kofi Annan which aim to reach a political solution to the Syrian crisis.

It pointed out that those deadly bombings in residential areas in Syrian cities are a "violation of human rights principles and the international humanitarian law and are absolutely unjustified. "
