U.S. Condemns Attack on Syrian Bakery

The United States condemned on Monday the Syrian regime's attack on civilians at a bakery in the town of Halfaya, in the central province of Hama.

"The United States condemns in the strongest terms the latest vicious attacks by the Syrian regime against civilians, most notably the attack on people waiting to buy bread at a bakery in the town of Halfaya," acting State Department spokesman Patrick Ventrell said in a statement quoted by AFP.

"Brutal attacks such as these show that this regime has no future in Syria. Those that commit atrocities will be held accountable. 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," said Ventrell.
