Syria – Attack in Deir ez-Zor (5 November 2017)


France condemns the terrorist attack on November 5 that took the lives of 75 people, most of them civilians fleeing the fighting in Deir ez-Zor.

The fight against terrorism is our priority. It is the purpose of our military efforts against Daesh with our international coalition partners.

While major progress has been made in fighting Daesh in Syria, only a political solution to the Syrian conflict in accordance with Security Council resolution 2254 will make it possible to bring a long-term response to the challenge of terrorism.
