Syria (Q&A - Excerpt from the daily press briefing - May 14, 2012)

Q : Do you have any response to the assault carried out by Syrian troops against the village of Al-Tamanaa Al-Ghab?

A : The Syrian authorities have just committed another massacre in the village of Al-Tamanaa Al-Ghab. The continuation of this bloody crackdown again shows the duplicity of the Damascus regime, which had pledged to withdraw its troops and to stop the bombing.

France calls on the UN observers to exercise the utmost vigilance and reaffirms the urgent need to swiftly deploy more observers so that the international community may be fully informed of the Syrian reality and so that their presence will discourage the continuation of this crime against humanity.
