Syria complains to UN over Hasaka deadly blast

Damascus, SANA-Syria complained to the UN over the deadly terrorist blast that hit Hasaka city on Friday.

On Friday, terrorists detonated two car bombs in al-Shuhadaa Square in al-Mufti residential neighborhood in Hasaka, claiming the lives of over 40 civilians and injuring more than 96 others, most of them women and children.

Foreign and Expatriates Ministry said in two identical letters it addressed to the UN Secretary General and Chairman of the United Nations Security Council that the attack coincided with the Syrians’ celebrations of Newroz, with festivities turning into funerals and a colossal national tragedy.

The new carnage adds to a long list of terrorist crimes in all Syrian provinces committed by what is called “moderate opposition”, said the ministry.

The ministry reminded of Syria’s repeated appeals for the UN to take firm line against terrorists and the countries backing them, urging the international community to “sever ties with terrorist organizations and stop trying to attain narrow political ends at the expense of the Syrians’ blood and suffering.”

Meanwhile, the letters warned that “the evils of terrorism won’t stop at Syria’s borders but will reach other countries,” calling for full cooperation with the Syrian government in the fight terrorism.

Syria demands that the UN Security Council take deterrent measures against terrorist groups and the countries sponsoring terrorism, the letters added.

The letters concluded by affirming that Syria is bent on fighting terrorism and protecting its citizens, side by side with efforts to reach a political solution to the crisis via a Syrian-led dialogue.
