Syria – Airstrike against Halfaya (December 24, 2012)

France condemns in the strongest terms the airstrike against Halfaya on December 23 by regime forces. By deliberately targeting a bakery, this airstrike killed more then 60 civilians, including women and children.

This heinous act offers further evidence of the savagery of Bashar al-Assad’s regime, which shrinks from nothing to stay in power. France hopes these crimes will not go unpunished and that their perpetrators will be held accountable before the international criminal court.
