UN Security Council condemns Syria bombings
United Nations: The Security Council has condemned the latest terrorist attacks in the Syrian capital of Damascus and called upon all parties to implement a UN peace plan to end 14 months of violence.
Ambassador Bashar Ja`afari said the two bombings in Damascus "took the lives of 56 innocent individuals and injured 372 others, who received grave injuries, in addition to the remains of 50 individuals who still have not been identified."
He said another explosion at the same time in Aleppo, Syria`s second city, "led also to... civilian victims and massive damages to private property."
The council in a statement today reaffirmed that "terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security, and that any acts of terrorism are criminal and unjustifiable regardless of their motivation."
