Al-Halqi held the terrorism sponsors, particularly Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia, responsible for such brutal massacres, demanding the international community to shoulder the humanitarian, moral and legal responsibility towards these inhuman perpetrations and put an end to the states which back and finance terrorism.

The Syrian people will not be frightened and such terrorist acts will increase their steadfastness and determination to achieve victory and defeat terrorism, he said.
