SECRETARY OF STATE CLINTON'S REMARKS ON HAOULA MASSACRE


FROM: U.S. STATE DEPARTMENT

Massacre in Haoula

Press Statement
Hillary Rodham Clinton
Secretary of State
Washington, DC
May 26, 2012
The United States condemns in the strongest possible terms yesterday's massacre in the Syrian village of Haoula. United Nations observers have confirmed that dozens of men, women, and children were killed and hundreds more wounded in a vicious assault that involved a regime artillery and tank barrage on a residential neighborhood.
Those who perpetrated this atrocity must be identified and held to account. And the United States will work with the international community to intensify our pressure on Asad and his cronies, whose rule by murder and fear must come to an end.We stand in solidarity with the Syrian people and the peaceful marchers in cities across Syria who have taken to the streets to denounce the massacre in Haoula.
