Paris, December 1, 2013

We were outraged to learn that a shell hit the French school in Damascus this morning while many children were on the premises.

France strongly condemns this cowardly act, which could have claimed the lives of young children.

Civilians are the first victims of the conflict that has been tearing Syria apart for years. The spiral of violence must end./.
