US Condemns Syria Government Airstrike On Market


The United States has condemned “in the strongest possible terms” the Assad regime’s deadly airstrikes yesterday on a market in the Damascus suburb of Douma, where more than 100 people were killed and hundreds were injured.

In a statement, US State Department spokesperson John Kirby noted that the Assad regime’s brutal attacks on Syria’s cities have killed thousands of people and destroyed schools, mosques, markets, and hospitals.

“Yesterday’s airstrikes, following its other recent market bombings and attacks on medical facilities, demonstrate the regime’s disregard for human life. As we have said, Assad has no legitimacy to lead the Syrian people,” Kirby said, adding that, “The United States is working with our partners toward a genuine, negotiated political transition away from Assad that brings an end to such attacks and leads to a future that fulfills Syrians’ aspirations for freedom and dignity.”
