Syria - Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (25.02.019)

Will France respond to this increasingly pressing appeal at a time when the SDF is dealing with a surge of foreigners – men, women and children – from the final IS pocket?

We are continuing to examine the situation, but our single objective remains the security of the French people.
