Britain denounces airstrike on Syrian refugee camp

LONDON, May 5 (KUNA) — British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond on Thursday expressed dismay over reports of a deadly airstrike on a refugee camp in Samarda, Idlib province, north Syria, near the border with Turkey.
“Reports of the bombing of a refugee camp in Samarda this evening are horrifying. The Assad Regime’s contempt for efforts to restore the cessation of hostilities in Syria is clear for all to see,” Secretary Hammond said in a press release.
“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 Asad to say enough is enough,” he added.
Earlier tonight the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that the air attack on the camp killed 28 internally-displaced people and wounded dozens of other. (end) mrn.gb
