Turkey has condemned the recent attacks carried out by the Syrian regime and “its supporters” against Aleppo, which killed over 300 civilians, injuring hundreds more, the country’s Foreign Ministry has said in a written statement.     

“Through these attacks, the Syrian regime mercilessly kills its own people and targets in particular humanitarian facilities such as hospitals, pumping stations and emergency response centers,” the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a written statement on Sept. 25.

“These attacks, committed at a time of intense efforts including Turkey and others to put in place a new cease-fire, has shown once again that the Syrian regime and its supporters do not intend to find a political solution,” the statement continued.        

The ministry said these acts were not only war crimes, but also grave crimes against humanity and constituted a serious violation of international law.

The northwestern Syrian city of Aleppo has recently come under intense attacks by regime and Russian forces, with the latest attacks on Sept. 19.
