Tobias Ellwood MP condemns attack against civilians in Homs, killing over 45 people, mostly children, after two car bombs exploded outside a primary school.
Minister for the Middle East Tobias Ellwood said:
I condemn recent attacks in Syria targeting civilians. These have included the bombing of a school in Homs, the continued use of indiscriminate barrel bombs by the Assad regime in Aleppo province, and the siege around Kobane.
Such attacks underline the dreadful toll that the conflict continues to take on the Syrian people and we call on all parties to end the deliberate targeting of civilians. The UK will continue to press for those responsible for such attacks to be held accountable and to press for a political solution to bring to an end the suffering of the Syrian people.
