EU condemns attack on Syrian refugee camp

BRUSSELS, May 6 (KUNA) — The European Union has condemned the bombardment on a refugee camp in northern Syria on Thursday as unacceptable and a grave violation of international humanitarian law.
“The reports of many casualties following an attack on a refugee camp in northern Syria today, shows that the most vulnerable people continue be the first victims of the conflict,” said EU High Representative Federica Mogherini and EU Commissioner for Humanitarian aid and Crisis management Christos Stylianides, in a joint statement here last night.
“Refugee camps should be a place where those most in need can find sanctuary from conflict, not targets of violence” it noted.
“Attacks of this kind highlight the urgent need for a negotiated end to the civil war. It is time for the international community to act collectively and forcefully to put the process back on track,” it added. (end) nk.tg
