BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:30 P.M.) – The U.S. Department of State issued a statement on Thursday that condemned the terrorist attack that was carried out by the Islamic State (ISIS) in the Al-Sweida Governorate yesterday.

“The Department of State strongly condemns today’s barbaric ISIS-claimed attacks that took place in Syria’s southwestern Sweida province, deliberately targeting and killing scores of civilians and injuring many more. We extend our condolences to the families of these innocent victims. We remain steadfast in our efforts to defeat ISIS and de-escalate the violence in Syria to bring greater peace and stability to this region,” the spokesperson for the U.S. Department of State, Heather Nauert, said in her statement today.

“The destruction of ISIS remains one of President Trump’s top priorities and the administration is unwavering in our commitment to working with the U.S.-led Global Coalition to achieve that goal,” she continued.

“We reiterate our support for the people of Syria and continue to work with the UN to end the violence and form a lasting political settlement to the seven-year crisis in accordance with UNSCR 2254, which must include full representation for all Syrians,” Nauert’s statement added.

What USA is saying is the same when a killer says to his victim’s family: “I strongly condemn today’s barbaric killing of innocent person. Furthermore, please accept my condolences to you of your loss”…

I’m starting to believe you are either a troll paid with just one goal – to accumulate more comments on this website trough provocations. Or, you are a Jew ready to talk any nonsense defending your fellow Jews. I don’t have any other logical explanation of your “twisted” mind…
