Statement regarding Aleppo bombardments

Handicap International's Director of Advocacy and Institutional Relations, Anne Héry, issued the following statement on Nov. 21, 2016:

“We demand an immediate end to the bombing of civilians, which has increased at a terrifying rate in recent days. Indiscriminate or deliberate attacks on civilians, and attacks on hospitals and schools are totally unacceptable and against international humanitarian law. The parties to the conflict must also allow humanitarian organizations to supply aid to people who need it.”
