Syria – Bombing of a market by the regime – Statement by Laurent Fabius (August 17, 2015)


I utterly condemn the bombing by the Damascus regime of the main market in the city of Douma, on the outskirts of the Syrian capital. The provisional toll is appalling, with almost 100 people dead and hundreds injured, including women and children.

This barbaric act again reflects the inhumanity of a regime that has no qualms about slaughtering its own people.

The only way to end the crisis in Syria is through a political solution based on the Geneva Communiqué.
