No:102, 4 April 2017, Press Release Regarding The Chemical Attacks Perpetrated By The Syrian Regime In Khan Sheikhun/idlib

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 04.04.2017

Turkey strongly condemns the chemical attacks perpetrated today (4 April) by the Syrian regime in Khan Sheikhun, Idlib which claimed the lives of tens of innocent civilians, mainly children.


The imagery and information received from Khan Sheikhun point out to the continuous use of chemical weapons by the Syrian regime, in clear violation of the UN Security Council Resolutions 2118 and 2209. We expect the international community to react to these attacks while we anticipate relevant international organizations, in particular the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, to immediately investigate these attacks, which have been repeated time and again.


We invite all the relevant parties, who have influence on the Syrian regime, to fulfill their responsibilities in order to immediately stop such brutal attacks which exclusively target civilians and constitute grave violations of the ceasefire regime.
