Bahram Ghasemi- FM Spoksman

The Iranian Foreign Ministry on Wednesday condemned the recent airstrikes carried out by French aircraft against a village in Syrian province of Aleppo, and said the massacre of innocent people was against the international norms.

In a statement, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said the attacks were “unacceptable”, and added, “Bombing and killing innocent people, especially women and children, with any aim or under any pretext is unacceptable, condemned and against international norms.”

The statement came as Syria’s Foreign Ministry said French warplanes targeted the village of Tukhar near the city of Manbij in the province of Aleppo, killing at least 120 civilians.

The ministry added that scores of other civilians remain unaccounted for following the attack.

According to the ministry, the fatalities came a day after a US airstrike killed at least 20 civilians in Manbij.
