UNITED NATIONS, May 6 (APP): The top United Nations humanitarian
official has called for an immediate, impartial and independent investigation into the air strikes that left dozens of civilians dead and injured in the northern Syrian Governorate of Idleb, which if found to be deliberate, could amount to a war crime.

“Horrified and sickened” by the news of civilians killed by  airstrikes that hit two settlements where displaced people had sought sanctuary,
Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, Stephen O’Brien said “All parties to this appalling conflict should understand that they will one day be held accountable for violations of international humanitarian and human rights law”.
