Turkey strongly condemned an attack on a United Nations (UN) convoy in Syria on Wednesday.      

In a statement released Wednesday, the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) said that it was under the obligation of the Syrian administration to provide security and freedom of movement for UN observers and that Turkey expected the Syrian administration to fulfill its responsibility completely.      

In its statement, the Turkish MFA strongly condemned a bomb explosion which took place in the vicinity of a convoy of UN observers in Syria today, injuring several Syrian troops accompanying the delegation.      

The observers, part of the UN Supervision Mission in Syria, were on their way from Damascus to the southern city of Dar'a, under Syrian army escort. They had crossed a military checkpoint on the road approaching the town when the improvised explosive device detonated, shortly before midday.
