Press release on the terrorist attack in Syria
It has been reported that at least 38 people have died and some 30 were wounded on July 25 following an attack of a suicide bomber at a market place in the government-controlled town of As-Suwayda in southern Syria. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack. At the same time, a terrorist offensive at the nearby city of Douma has been repelled.
In the light of the recent progress by the Syrian Army, supported by the Russian Aerospace Forces, in liberating Syria from ISIS, Jabhat al-Nusra and other terrorist groups, the extremists, fearing imminent defeat, have resorted to large-scale violence against civilians.
We strongly condemn these atrocities. We express our condolences to the families of those killed and wish a speedy recovery to the wounded.
The latest criminal attack by the ISIS terrorists has reaffirmed the misanthropic essence of the ideology and practice of terrorism and the importance of coordinating energetic international efforts to stamp out this global evil in Syria.
