Iran condemns French airstrikes on Syrian village

TEHRAN, Jul. 21 (MNA) – Foreign Ministry spokesman Ghasemi condemned death of civilians in Aleppo countryside by bombardment of French fighters.

“Killing of innocent people particularly women and children, no matter what is the aim and under any pretext, is doomed and considered unacceptable and against the international law,” said Ghasemi reacting to airstrikes by French warplanes on Toukhar village near Aleppo on Wednesday.

French warplanes targeted the village of Tukhar near the city of Manbij in the province of Aleppo, killing at least 120 civilians, according to the Syrian Foreign Ministry, which added that scores of other civilians remain unaccounted for following the attack, SANA reported.
