OFFICIAL STATEMENT 097
Attack to west of Aleppo

​Spain strongly condemns Saturday’s attack in Rashidin, to the west of Aleppo, killing at least 120 people, among them a large number of children, and injuring a great many others

17/04/2017

The Government of Spain expresses its deepest sympathies to the families of the victims and hopes that those injured will enjoy a speedy recovery.

The government stresses the obligation to protect the civilian population established under international humanitarian law and trusts that those responsible for the attack will be brought to justice to answer for their crimes.

The Government of Spain reaffirms the need to reach a negotiated solution to the conflict in Syria as soon as possible in line with the provisions of the 2012 Geneva Communiqué and of United Nations Security Council Resolution 2254 (2015), as the only way to reach a lasting peace, bring an end to the suffering of the people and effectively fight terrorism.
