Qa-47, 29 June 2018, Statement Of The Spokesperson Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Hami Aksoy, In Response To A Question Regarding The Increase In The Syrian Regime’s Attacks Targeting The De-escalation Area Declared In The Provinces Of Deraa And Quneitra
Dozens of innocent people were massacred as a result of the Syrian regime’s attacks targeting civilians in the de-escalation area declared in the provinces of Deraa and Quneitra in southwest Syria in accordance with the memorandum signed in Astana. We are saddened by and worried over these attacks. We strongly condemn these inhuman attacks.
These attacks hinder the efforts in Astana and Geneva to reduce violence on the ground and to find a political solution for the crisis.
We call on the other guarantors of the Astana agreement and the international community for the immediate cessation of these attacks.
