The attackers shot martyred al-Laham on Sunday, while he was heading from the mosque to his home.

He is one of the several religious figures killed in the country in recent months.

Praising Syrians for their hospitality, Major General Robert Mood said that the UN mission is trying to help the people in the country.

Earlier in the day, a huge crowd attended the funeral of a Christian woman killed in twin blasts in the capital on Thursday.

Thirty-year-old Dima Farah was on her way to work when the explosions took place.

Meanwhile, UN observers continue to monitor a ceasefire, which has officially been in effect for more than three weeks.
