Yemen – Bombing in the Sana area (September 10, 2016)


France condemns the bombing carried out on September 10 in the Sana area, which left at least 22 civilians dead.

We call on all parties to implement UNSCR 2216 and to respect international humanitarian law and the Geneva Conventions, which notably involve ending the attacks against civilians.

The populations must be able to benefit from full, safe and unrestricted humanitarian access.

France reaffirms the urgent need to reach a political solution, which is the only way to prevent the security and humanitarian situation from further deteriorating and to effectively combat terrorism. We reaffirm our full support for the efforts of the UN Special Envoy, Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed.
