On latest terrorist attacks in Syria

On 28 November 2012 in the town Jaramana to the south-east of the Syrian capital a series of major terrorist attacks has occurred, including two car bomb explosions in the central square of the town. As reported by the Syrian Ministry of Interior at least 34 people have been killed, remains of 10 unidentified people were found, 83 people were injured. In two other areas of the city explosive devices went off, resulting in serious damage of nearby residential buildings.

Russian citizens were not injured in the explosions.

We strongly condemn these new terrorist crimes which cannot be justified. We express our deepest sympathy to the families and friends of those killed and injured. Such inhuman acts are traditional methods of international terrorist organisations like "Al-Qaeda". Their goal is to undermine any efforts aimed at stabilization of the situation in SAR and at resolving the crisis by peaceful political means.
