Syria – Bombing of a hospital (August 6, 2016)


France strongly condemns the bombing of a hospital in Millis, in northwestern Syria, that left 10 people dead, including children.

Such acts are a gross violation of resolution 2286 whereby last May the UN Security Council condemned attacks against the sick, medical personnel and humanitarian personnel in armed conflicts. The regime and its supporters must end these despicable attacks on civilians.

We call for a restoration of the cessation of hostilities, for civilian access to humanitarian aid, and for the resumption of talks on a political transition.
