Russian embassy in Syria was shelled again


A mortar shell fell again on the territory of Russian Embassy in Syria this week, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

“I would like to thank Syria for the efforts being made to ensure the safety of our diplomatic representation in Damascus, and all our citizens in Syria. Unfortunately, such measures must be preserved, and even enhanced. November 23 a mortar shell fell at the Embassy again,” – said Lavrov said at a meeting with his Syrian counterpart Walid Muallem.

In October, the Russian diplomatic mission in Damascus also suffered from bombardment.
