Russia’s foreign ministry said Monday it strongly condemned what it called recent terrorist attacks in Syria, saying they were aimed at wrecking peace efforts.

 

Multiple bomb blasts in a southern district of Damascus killed at least 87 people Sunday, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said, and twin car bombs killed at least 59 people in Homs, the monitoring group said.

 

“We are convinced that such abhorrent criminal acts need adequate … reaction from the international community,” the Russian ministry said in an online statement.
