BOMBINGS IN SYRIA

 

Labor is deeply disturbed by claims the Assad regime has bombed an internally displaced persons camp near Sarmada in northern Syria, killing at least 28 people.

 

 

These are desperate people, fleeing one of the world’s most brutal civil wars. There is no excuse for these shocking airstrikes.

 

 

 

We call on all parties to redouble their efforts on a political resolution to this terrible conflict.
