Bombing in Aleppo

Media networks have reported deaths of at least 200 civilians in Aleppo in the past few days following the bombing of a hospital and other targets. The Revd Steve Wild and Dr Jill Barber, President and Vice-President of the Methodist Conference have made the following statement:  

"The bombing and shelling of homes and hospitals in residential areas is totally unacceptable. We call on the UK Government to bring whatever influence it can to ensure an immediate halt of this new cycle of violence in Aleppo and to urge all parties to return to the recently agreed ceasefire. Our hearts go out to the people in Aleppo and we hold all people in Syria in our prayers at this time."
