15 January 2013 - Syria - Attack on Aleppo University

Statement by the Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs

France utterly condemns the attack perpetrated yesterday against Aleppo University, which killed more than 82 people and injured more than 150, the vast majority of them students. The perpetrators of these crimes must be brought to justice. We note that the Syrian National Coalition, the only legitimate representative of the Syrian people, strongly condemned this attack.

This tragic incident, which once again has affected the civilian population, adds to the devastating toll of the Syrian crisis, which has left more than 60,000 people dead. It reinforces our belief that Bashar al-Assad must step down as swiftly as possible in order to allow a political transition to take place and the violence to end.
