Syria has condemned the terrorist attacks that claimed dozens of lives and wounded hundreds across Iraq on Monday.
"Syria condemns in the strongest terms the cowardly terrorist attacks in Baghdad and elsewhere across Iraq that claimed dozens of lives and injured hundreds of innocent Iraqis," an official source at the foreign ministry said.
"Syria expresses solidarity with the families of victims and stands by them during these difficult circumstances. Syria urges the countries and groups behind these criminal acts who provide terrorists with funds and weapons – known by everyone- to immediately stop killing Iraqis and targeting the unity and territorial integrity of Iraq," the ministry source said.
"Syria calls on the U.N. Security Council and the international community to condemn these acts and hold the financers of terrorism and those who are providing terrorists with weapons and inciting them to commit massacres, responsible."
