The State Department late Monday responded to “vicious” attacks by the Syrian regime against civilians, condemning the violence “in the strongest terms.”
“The United States calls on all parties that continue to assist the regime in executing its war against the Syrian people to end their support.”
The State Department singled out an attack on people waiting to buy bread at a bakery in the town of Helfeya.
Dozens of people were killed in that airstrike, according to Reuters.
A witness told the news service that more than 1,000 people were lined up at the bakery.
