Russian Foreign Minister Says Shelling of Embassy in Damascus “Act of Terror”

Moscow, October 13 (RHC)-- Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Tuesday described the shelling of Moscow's embassy in Damascus as an "act of terror" aimed at intimidating those who support Moscow's bombing campaign in Syria.

"It is a clear act of terror meant to scare supporters of fighting terrorism," Lavrov told reporters in Moscow, after two rockets struck the Russian embassy compound. No one was killed during the incident which took place as some 300 people were rallying near the embassy in support of Russia's recent intervention in Syria.

Demonstrators had been waving Russian flags and holding up large photographs of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"We are counting on the perpetrators being found and that measures be taken to prevent such acts in the future," Lavrov said, adding Moscow would investigate the incident along with Syrian authorities.
