BRUSSELS, -- The EU condemned Sunday the relentless bombing of East Aleppo by the Syrian regime in the last few days that now left hundreds of thousands of besieged civilians without access to food and to functioning hospitals.
"This comes after the refusal to allow medical and other urgent humanitarian supplies into the city during the pause in the fighting," said EU Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid Management Christos Stylianides in a statement.
"These unacceptable violations of international humanitarian law could amount to war crimes and must cease, and the airstrikes must be stopped to allow humanitarian aid delivery into East Aleppo and the evacuation of wounded civilians," he said.
He added that "those responsible for such atrocities will be held accountable under international law. They must realise that each new atrocity of this kind only makes an end to the conflict harder to achieve.
