Russia condemns Israel’s airstrikes on Syria

Moscow, Jun 4 (Prensa Latina) Russia on Tuesday condemned Israel's airstrikes on Syria, as such actions night cause an escalation of violence, the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

Such an aggression, which is a severe violation of Syria’s sovereignty and the basic norms of international law, and can lead to dangerous consequences in the Middle East, are unacceptable, said the statement, published on the official website of the Russian Foreign Ministry.

The press release emphasized that Russia is calling again on the Israeli Government to abandon this vicious practice, fraught with uncontrolled destabilization of the situation in the entire region.

The Syrian Defense Ministry reported that Israel’s airstrikes hit the city of Aleppo early on Monday and killed several people.

On May 29, Israeli air forces struck the western city of Baniyas, killing a two-year-old girl and injuring ten other civilians.
