AMMAN – The Syrian government on Tuesday apologised for an attack the previous night on the Jordanian embassy in Damascus, perpetrated by regime supporters.

The Jordan News Agency, Petra, quoted Foreign Ministry Spokesman Mohammed Al Kayed as saying that the apology was made by Syrian Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Miqdad during a meeting in Damascus with Arab ambassadors.

Miqdad promised to intensify security around the missions that have been target of similar attacks lately, according to Kayed.
