Syria condemns Nigeria bombings

Bashar al-Assad, Syrian president

Syria calls attacks on civilians “outrageous”

The Syrian Government has condemned the killing of more than 100 civilians in Nigeria this week in multiple bomb attacks, calling blasts the “outrageous”.

The first attack occurred on Sunday in Kano, killing at least four people. Twin car bombs killed at least 118 people in Jos, Plateau State, on Tuesday.

There have also been a series of raids by gunmen on communities in Borno State, with dozens more killed.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attacks, but extremist sect, Boko Haram, is suspected.

The Syrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates denounced the attacks in a statement Friday.

It called for a global action against terrorism and urged the international community to expose members and sponsors of “Wahabi Takfiri” terrorism and bring them to justice.

Terrorism “presents a clear jeopardy to the stability of countries which often fall prey to similar attacks,” and its “catastrophic consequences” on world nations and the international peace and security, Syria said.

Syria is fighting a three-year old brutal civil war that began after rebels demanded that President Bashir Al-Assad leave office.

    For Syria, with its very ugly human rights records especially in their ongoing war, to condemn the Boko Haram activities should send a very strong message to the Boko Haram! Boko Haram should now know that it is losing sympathy all over the Muslim world; even Saudi Arabia condemned the activities of the Boko Haram. And should Boko Haram cause another civil war in Nigeria it should know that the Arab and Muslim World would turn their backs against this evil sect. But why are some Nigerian Muslims supporting this devilish act and wanting to cause another civil war in the country? These Muslims must understand that the political dynamics of the world have changed immensely since the Nigerian civil war of 1967-1970. Should another civil war start again, the entire Muslims of Nigeria would be left on their own for everybody now knows that they are deliberately causing trouble in Nigeria!
