Communiqué of the Italian Foreign Ministry on the situation in Idlib

We are following the developments taking place in the area of Idlib with concern and anxiety. The intensified clashes has caused hundreds of civil victims, thousands of casualties, further destruction and the displacement from their homes of over 500 thousand people.

Italy appeals to all the conflicting parties to immediately cease hostilities and allow the arrival of humanitarian aid to the people in need. This is a humanitarian imperative. 

The fight against terrorist organisations cannot justify indiscriminate attacks against civil targets, schools and hospitals. Italy once more appeals to the parties involved to respect international humanitarian law.

No solution to the Syrian crisis can come from the military option, but should be centred on a credible and inclusive political process, in line with UN Resolution 2254. This is why we must continue to firmly support the work of the Special Envoy of the United Nations, Mr. Pedersen.
