Syria – Attack in Rashidin (15 April 2017)

France strongly condemns the attack that killed dozens of civilians, including a large number of children, on April 15 in Rashidin (west of Aleppo) in Syria.

Attacks against civilians are unacceptable, regardless of the perpetrators. Those responsible for these heinous crimes must be brought to justice.

France calls for the protection of the evacuees and for strict compliance with international humanitarian law and the cessation of hostilities. It reaffirms its commitment to a political solution in accordance with the terms of UNSCR 2254 and reaffirms its support for UN mediation.
