Anna Fotyga: Justice is needed for the people of Syria following chemical attack

Apr 05, 2017


Anna Fotyga MEP, Chair of the European Parliament Security and Defence Committee:

‘I strongly condemn the chemical attack against innocent people of Syria, which left more than 70 people dead and hundreds injured in Idlib province yesterday, including women and children.  It is clear that the Assad’s regime has once again crossed the red line and these actions constitute war crimes and crimes against humanity.  International community cannot once more show its weakness, and remain inactive in the face of such atrocities.  We all know the names politically responsible for this barbaric attack.  International investigation of this heinous war crime is needed and all responsible for massive killing of people of Syria should be brought to justice, regardless of position they held.’
