Syria – Bombing of Homs (April 16, 2014)

France condemns the intensified bombing of the city of Homs, which has been besieged for several months and where the situation is tragic.

We are concerned about the fate of civilians held hostage by the fighting and call for an immediate truce in order to allow them to be evacuated.

This evacuation must be carried out in accordance with international humanitarian law, in contrast to what happened in February when the regime held back hundreds of people, including children.
