Saudi Arabia condemns massacre committed by Assad's forces in Commune Camp

RIYADH, 8th May, 2016 (WAM) -- An official source at the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs has strongly expressed the condemnation of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia over the heinous massacre committed by Bashar al-Assad's forces in the Commune Camp in Idlib, resulting in the deaths of dozens of people.

The Saudi Press Agency, SPA, quoted the source as saying that the war of extermination perpetrated by Bashar al-Assad and his forces against civilians in Syria, and the prevention of humanitarian aid reaching the Syrian brotherly people, are war crimes which should not be tolerated, and represents a flagrant challenge against international will, and a flagrant violation of all international laws and ethical principles of humanity.

The official source concluded the statement by demanding that the international community fulfill its responsibilities, especially those allies of Bashar al-Assad, and make further efforts to stop the violence to ensure compliance with the cessation of hostilities and the implementation of Security Council Resolution No. 2254. He called on all to take actions and measures to achieve this, ensuring the prevention of Syrian civilians' bloodshed and leading to a political solution to the situation in Syria, in accordance with the principles of the Geneva 1 Declaration.
