European Union condemns Russia bombing of Aleppo, says may be war crime

LUXEMBOURG -- The European Union condemned on Monday Syrian and Russian air strikes on the rebel-held part of Aleppo, singling out Moscow for deliberately targeting hospitals and medical personnel.

 

"Since the beginning of the offensive by the regime and its allies, notably Russia, the intensity and scale of the aerial bombardment
of eastern Aleppo is clearly disproportionate," said the statement agreed by the EU's 28 governments.

 

"The deliberate targeting of hospitals, medical personnel, schools and essential infrastructure, as well as the use of barrel bombs, cluster bombs, and chemical weapons ... may amount to war crimes," EU foreign ministers agreed in Luxembourg.
