Foreign Ministry Blames 'Terrorist' Assad Foes for Aleppo Blasts

The Foreign Ministry on Wednesday condemned blasts that killed 87 people in the Syrian city of Aleppo and blamed the explosions on "terrorists" it said were seeking revenge for losses in the conflict with government forces.

Each side in Syria's 22-month-old conflict blamed the other for Tuesday's blasts at the university, located in a government-held area of the northern city, Syria's most populous. Russia said foes of President Bashar Assad were responsible.

"We condemn the latest mass killing of innocent people in Syria in the most decisive way," the Foreign Ministry said, adding that the entire international community should take "a similarly uncompromising position toward terrorism."
