Ibrahimi: Damascus Blast A War Crime

Local Editor

International peace envoy to Syria al-Akhdar Ibrahimi said Friday that a devastating bomb blast in the Syrian capital was a “war crime” that had left about 100 people dead.

In parallel, Ibrahimi strongly condemned “the savage and horrible explosion in Damascus Friday, which resulted in the killing of around 100 and the injuring of two hundred fifty civilians.”
“Nothing could justify such horrible actions that amount to war crimes under international law,” the international envoy added in his statement.

Ibrahimi further called last month for the UN Security Council to set up an independent international investigation for “such crimes” in Syria.

In letters to the UN secretary general and the chairman of the UN Security Council [UNSC] on Thursday, the Syrian Foreign Ministry said the Security Council’s adoption of a firm stance on the deadly attack would send a message to terrorist groups and those who support them.
“But if the UNSC turns a blind eye to this terrorist act, just as it did previously, it will deepen doubts about its seriousness in combating terrorism and its commitment to implementing its resolutions in this regard,” the Syrian Foreign Ministry added.
