Initial reports indicate that a number of civilians were killed and wounded as a result of a terrorist bombing targeting the town of Sajjo near Bab al-Salama border crossing in northern rural Aleppo.
Civil defense teams and medical personnel have assisted the injured. Investigations must begin immediately to reveal the circumstances surrounding the attack.
We are certain that the source of terrorism in Syria is known, and that the Assad regime is responsible for the overwhelming majority of bombings, whether directly or indirectly. However, it is necessary to follow up investigations to find out who is behind each attack and through direct evidence, in addition to clarifying their details and how they happened and revealing all those involved in their execution.
Although this type of attacks has decreased relatively in recent months, it appears that their sponsors have chosen to return to the practice of criminality. This doubles our responsibilities at various levels, especially with regard to ensuring security and preventing infiltration of any elements affiliated with the regime.
The Syrian National Army and the Free Police Force are now on full alert to prevent recurrence of such incidents and detain all those involved.
We extend our heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims as we wish the injured speedy recovery.
