Turkish Foreign Ministry issued a statement on Friday condemning Thursday's massacre in Tramseh village of Hama in Syria.
"This is another example of Syrian regime's attacks and massacres on its own people. We strongly condemn and curse the killing of nearly 200 innocent civilians, most of them women and children," the statement said.
