Turkey, the United States and France condemned the Assad regime’s bombing of a hospital and a school in eastern Ghouta on Thursday. At least 30 people were killed and 30 others were wounded in airstrikes carried out by regime forces on mainly civilian targets in the rebel-held area.
In a statement released on Thursday, the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs said it “condemns attacks of the Syrian regime on its own citizens, in this respect, killing civilians, including children and students, by hitting Turkmen regions in Lazkiye and hitting a school and a hospital in Ghouta region of Damascus.”
Spokesman for France’s Foreign Ministry Romain Nadal said that “France condemns the airstrikes carried out by the regime…This attack, which deliberately targeted civilians, including children, shows that the regime is continuing its abuses and violating the truce.”
“This abject act is designed to terrorize the Syrian people and sap efforts by the international community to find a political solution,” Nadal added.
Moreover, The United States said it was “appalled” by the strikes.
“We condemn in the strongest terms any such attacks directed at civilians,” US State Department spokesman John Kirby said earlier today. (Source: Agencies)
