Turkey condemns attack on Russian embassy


Turkey has strongly condemned a mortar shelling of the Russian embassy in Damascus that killed one Syrian and injured nine others.

One mortar round landed at the embassy's premises and the other exploded close to it, killing and injuring local residents, including guards.

Russia, a staunch supporter of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, has criticised the West for aiding rebels who have been fighting to topple him for more than two years in a war that has cost well over 100,000 lives.

A statement Turkish Foreign Ministry released on Friday said such attacks against innocent civilians and a diplomatic mission, no matter what the justification is, is against international law and unacceptable.
