NEW YORK, May 6 (KUNA) — UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon called Friday upon all Member States to take immediate collective and decisive action to bring the tragedy unfolding in Syria to an end.
In a statement released by his press office today, Ban reiterated his call on the Security Council to send a strong message to all warring parties in Syria that there will be serious consequences for grave violations of international humanitarian and human rights law.
Ban is outraged by yesterday’s attack on a makeshift camp for displaced persons near the Syrian village of Sarmada in Idlib province, the statement added.
The United Nations, along with humanitarian partners on the ground, are assessing the needs and mobilising a response for the families who fled the camp out of fear of further attacks.
Ban also called in his statement, for those responsible for yesterday’s seemingly calculated attack against civilians in the camp in Idlib, which could constitute a war crime, must be held accountable.
He again urged the Security Council to refer the situation in Syria to the International Criminal Court.
Members of the Security Council should build on resolutions 2254 and 2268 and follow through on the commitments they made in these resolutions to press the Syrian parties to stop their indiscriminate attacks on civilians. (end) mao.ibi
