Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Tuesday the shelling of Moscow's embassy in Damascus was an "act of terror" aimed at intimidating those who supported "fighting terrorism."
"It is a clear act of terror meant to scare supporters of fighting terrorism," Lavrov told reporters in Moscow, after two rockets had struck the Russian embassy compound but did not cause any fatalities.
