Syria’s UN Ambassador Bashar Jaafari told the UN Security Council on Thursday that suicide bombers who struck Damascus and killed more than 50 people came from countries “well known” to the international community, dpa reported.

Jaafari did not name the countries in an address delivered to the 15-nation council, which was meeting on international terrorism. But he had been accusing Saudi Arabia and Qatar, and also al Qaeda, for assisting the armed opposition in Syria.

Jaafari said the twin bombings in Damascus killed 56 people, wounded 372 others and at least 50 people were still unaccounted for.

“Syria expects the UN Security Council to clearly and strongly condemn these cowardly acts,” Jaafari said.
