Comment by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of South Ossetia in connection with the airstrikes on the territory of Syria

МИД Южной Осетии

On October 12, the Israeli Air Force launched strikes on the territory of the Syrian Arab Republic, as a result of which the runways of the international airports of Damascus and Aleppo were damaged.

Against the background of the sharp aggravation of the situation around the Gaza Strip and the Palestinian-Israeli relations in general, which have caused numerous human casualties, including among the civilian population, airstrikes on the infrastructure of neighboring states are fraught with further escalation of tension in the region.

We are confident that there is no alternative to political and diplomatic methods of resolving the existing contradictions on an international legal basis.
