Turkey's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) on Thursday strongly condemned the massacre that took place in Hama region of Syria yesterday.
In a written statement released Thursday, the Turkish MFA indicated that they condemned fiercely and cursed the massacre of 102 innocent civilians, including many children and women, in Hama's Al Qubayr village by forces of the Syrian administration and Shebbiah militias on Wednesday.
We wish God's mercy to our Syrian brothers and sisters who lost their lives, offer our condolences to the families of the dead and wish speedy recovery to those wounded, the MFA stressed in their statement.
The massacres committed against the civilians in Syria should not remain unpunished. It is the duty of the international community to say 'stop' to the incidents taking place in Syria. The dimension of violence against the Syrian people necessitates a transition process to democracy based on the legitimate demands of the Syrians, the MFA underlined.
Turkey will continue to work with the international community and the people of Syria so that the brutality of the Syrian regime does not cost the lives of more innocent individuals, the MFA also said in their statement.
