Syria: Red Cross Attack Harmed Iraqi Interests

Syria condemned as “terrorism” Wednesday a deadly suicide attack on the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in Baghdad this week, saying such attacks harmed the Iraqi people’s interests. “Syria strongly condemns the destructive attack on the ICRC offices in Baghdad,” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Bushra Kanafani said in remarks run by the official SANA news agency. “Such operations that target innocent life and humanitarian and international organizations, severely harm the interests of the Iraqi people. They are terrorist acts,” she said. The attack on the ICRC was one of four suicide missions that killed 35 people and wounded 230 Monday in Baghdad’s bloodiest day since Saddam Hussein was overthrown. A U.S. general has said one attacker captured alive in an attempted suicide bombing on a police station on that day was carrying a Syrian passport. Full Story
