Syria

Our humanitarian colleagues are concerned by reports of ongoing hostilities and airstrikes in Syria’s south-eastern Deir Ezzour governorate, which have resulted in civilian deaths and injury.

Yesterday, four internally displaced people were reportedly killed in an airstrike on Hajin city. The attack follows reports of intensified airstrikes on residential areas in Hajin, in which at least 10 civilians were killed last Thursday.

The United Nations continues to call on all the parties to the conflict to respect their obligations under international humanitarian law and international human rights law, including ensuring the protection of civilians and civilian infrastructure.
