France condemns Syrian regime’s rocket attacks on Idlib

Syria/shelling of a displaced persons’ camp (20 November 2019) – Press briefing by the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs Deputy Spokesperson (excerpt)

Paris, 21 November 2019

France strongly condemns the continued indiscriminate rocket attacks by the Syrian regime and its allies targeted against Idlib, notably the attack carried out on 20 November against a displaced persons camp near the Turkish border, in an area where many Syrians fleeing the fighting had taken refuge, which has reportedly left several people dead.

The continued hostilities undermine efforts to find a credible and negotiated political solution in accordance with UNSCR 2254.

France calls for the immediate cessation of hostilities in the Idlib region./.
