|‘Al-Qaeda-West terrorist alliance targeting Syria’||
Adnan Mahmoud said on Saturday that the terrorist acts that are targeting Syria “are a violation of the United Nations Security Council resolutions and aim at undermining Mr. Kofi Annan’s peace plan.”
"This terrorist escalation using booby-trapped cars with tons of explosives to target the Syrian people... is a continuation of the bloody terrorist tactic used between armed groups and al-Qaeda, along with the international Western countries that support them with weapons and money," he added.
"Western countries and the United States, which made alliances to wage wars using the pretext of fighting terrorism, are now making alliances with the terrorists which Syria has been facing," he stated.
Syria has been experiencing unrest since mid-March 2011. While the West and the Syrian opposition say the government is responsible for the killings, Damascus blames “outlaws, saboteurs and armed terrorist groups” for the unrest, insisting that it is being orchestrated from abroad.
Large crowds of Syrians have held many demonstrations to express their solidarity with the government and its policy of supporting the resistance movements struggling to bring an end to the Israeli occupation of Palestine.
Meanwhile, UN observers continue monitoring a ceasefire, which has officially been in effect for more than three weeks.
The ceasefire is part of a six-point peace plan presented by UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan in March.
The first group of UN observers arrived in Damascus late on April 15, in line with UN Security Council Resolution 2042, which was approved on April 14.
On April 21, the UN Security Council met and unanimously approved Resolution 2043, which ratified a proposal to send a mission of 300 observers to Syria.
