Syria – Aerial bombings (May 30, 2016)


France condemns the continued bombing by the regime and its allies, in violation of the commitments undertaken in Vienna on May 17 aimed at restoring the truce.

Several air raids were carried out on May 30 against the town of Idlib and in Aleppo Province, killing more than 40 civilians and partially destroying two hospitals.

France calls for compliance with the truce and the provision of humanitarian access wherever necessary. As reaffirmed by Staffan de Mistura, this is essential in order to allow the resumption of talks between the regime and the opposition.
