WASHINGTON – The White House issued a statement Monday condemning the “ongoing air assaults” by the Syrian government against civilians, which have reportedly killed more than 300 people, many of them children.

“The United States condemns the ongoing air assault by Syrian government forces on civilians, including the indiscriminate use of SCUD missiles and barrel bombs in and around Aleppo over the last week,” Press Secretary Jay Carney said. “The Syrian government must respect its obligations under international humanitarian law to protect the civilian population.”

Carney said that the Syrian government must fulfill its November commitment to do more to facilitate the safe and unhindered delivery of humanitarian assistance, “so that millions of Syrian men, women, and children have access to urgently needed services. To bring the suffering of the Syrian people to an end, it is imperative that Syrians reach a comprehensive and durable political solution to end the crisis in Syria.”

The White House re-iterated that the United States remains committed to advancing a political settlement to help end the bloodshed in Syria.
