Syria demands that UN condemns terrorist attack in Damascus

Syria today demanded that the UN make a strong condemnation of the terrorist attack with a car bomb that killed 10 people and wounded 66 on Thursday in Jaramana, a location on the outskirts of Damascus.

In identical letters to the Security Council and the UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Emigrants demanded the authority renew its rejection of terrorism and require the parties aiding armed terrorist groups in Syria to suppress any logistical and military support.

It also asked the commitment to international conventions and resolutions of the Security Council address to combat terrorism.

Damascus has asked the Security Council to send a strong message to the perpetrators of the crime where absence of the unified stance of its members against terrorism, with double standards, incentivates extremists to continue their crimes.

The terrorist attack was claimed by the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, an organization affiliated with al Qaeda, and left severe damage to shopkeepers, cars, buildings and residential dwellings of that region. The UN and the United States keeps the group in the list of terrorist organizations.

Since the conflict began, more than two years ago, the Syrian government has demanded the UN Security Council condemn of every act of radical Islamic terrorist groups affiliated to armed opponents who want the overthrow by force of President Bashar Al-Assad.

To date, the agency continues without issuing an explicit condemnation of such crimes before the divergence of its members on the nature, composition and purpose of the call to armed insurgency.

Recently, the United States approved the delivery of military equipment to irregulars, despite the danger that weapons are falling into the hands of fundamentalists of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, who defend damage to the Syrian secular state and impose a caliphate governed by sharia ( Islamic law).
