Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond described an attack Bashar Assad's troops launched against a refugee camp in Syria as ‘appalling' and such that shows that ‘there are no depths to which the regime will not sink’. 27 people were reported to have been killed in the attack.
“The Assad regime's contempt for efforts to restore the cessation of hostilities in Syria is clear for all to see," Hammond said.
According to Hammond, it was no coincidence the attack came against the backdrop of a concert in Palmira.
"This attack took place against the backdrop of a concert in Palmyra, a tasteless attempt to distract attention from the continued suffering of millions of Syrians. It shows that there are no depths to which the regime will not sink. It is time for those with influence over Assad to say enough is enough," said Hammond.
It was reported earlier that 27 people were killed in an airstrike Bashar Assad’s fighter jets launched against a refugee camp in the northern Syrian province of Idlib.
Earlier on, state-owned Ikbarie TV channel aired a report claiming that Bashar Assad’s troops confirmed a 48-hour ceasefire. The ceasefire came into effect at 1 a.m. local time.
