“We have temporarily suspended operations in these areas in order to safely relocate humanitarian staff and are closely monitoring the situation.

We intend to resume operations as soon as possible so that civilians affected by the conflict continue to receive the assistance they need.

I condemn in the strongest terms attacks on civilians and civilian infrastructure which may constitute violations of International Humanitarian Law.”
