Damascus, SANA

Syria expressed vehement condemnation of the massacre which armed terrorist groups committed in Egypt’s Sinai and claimed the lives of scores of Egyptian army and security personnel in a series of bombings that took place on Friday.

In a statement which SANA got a copy of, an official source at the Foreign and Expatriates Ministry decried what the terrorists did in Sinai as “a horrific massacre”.

Syria, the source said, “strongly condemns this massacre, its perpetrators and the parties that had provided money and arms to the terrorists who committed it.”

While expressing denunciation, the source added, Syria “stresses that such acts serve only Israel and its hostile schemes,” warning that this terrorism which is aided and abetted by regional and international sides that are known “threatens the security and stability of our Arab countries.”
