Syria - Bombing in Jayrud (2 July 2016)


France condemns the Syrian air force’s bombing of the city of Jayrud, near Damascus, which killed more than 43 people, among them were many civilians and two medical staff.

This bombing is a further violation of international humanitarian law and of the commitments made in Vienna. France reiterates that it is a matter of urgency for the truce to be fully respected.

We call on the regime and its supporters to stop all attacks on its civilian populations and infrastructure, especially medical staff and facilities.
