Syria – Air strikes against Deir Al-Asafir (March 31, 2016)


France condemns the regime’s air strikes on the outskirts of Damascus on March 31 that left several dozen dead and injured.

This attack, which deliberately targeted civilians, including children, shows that the regime continues to carry out atrocities and violate the truce.

This heinous act is intended to terrorize the Syrian people and undermine the international community’s efforts in support of a political solution.

France calls on the regime to immediately cease any and all attacks on civilians and on the moderate opposition in line with international humanitarian law and Security Council resolutions. Those responsible must be held accountable.
