DAMASCUS, Syria – Russia’s embassy in Damascus came under mortar shelling from terrorists’ positions, but thankfully no one was hurt according to the Russian Foreign Ministry on Monday.
However the embassy’s wall, electricity lines and water supplies systems were damaged by the shelling.
“We hope that our so active on the Syrian trajectory Western colleagues in the UN Security Council will have the heart not to keep silent but to give proper public evaluation of the incident in which the lives of Russian diplomats were jeopardized,” the ministry said.
“We want to confirm once again that such provocations don’t influence Russia’s resolve to complete the destruction of a terrorist hotbed in the Syrian Arab Republic, to contribute to restoration of peace and security in Syria, strengthening of its sovereignty, unity and territorial integrity,” the ministry went on.
