“Nothing could justify such horrible actions that amount to war crimes under international law,” Mr. Brahimi said in a statement issued by his spokesperson.
The statement noted that in his report to the Security Council last month, Mr. Brahimi proposed that an independent international investigation be carried for these types of crimes.
Mr. Brahimi joins Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in deploring yesterday's bombings and calling for the immediate cease of violence by all parties in the country.
Up to 70,000 people, mostly civilians, have been killed since the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad began in March 2011.
