France Warns Russia, Allies of Committing War Crimes In Syria’s Idlib

On Wednesday France’s foreign minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said that the indiscriminate bombing by Russian, Syrian and Iranian forces in Syria’s Idlib region could amount to war crimes. “The hypothesis of war crimes cannot be excluded … once one begins to indiscriminately bomb civilian populations and hospitals,” Jean-Yves Le Drian told lawmakers.

He also said that efforts should be made to prepare for a mass humanitarian crisis should thousands of people were displaced by the fighting.
