A few minutes after the arrival of the French delegation at the airport of Aleppo, three French MPs, Thierry Mariani (LR, EPP) Nicolas Dhuicq (LR, EPP) and Jean Lassalle (MoDem, ALDE) were targeted with 8 rockets. They were immediately protected by Syrian soldiers, RTL France reports.
No causalities were reported.
In his Twitter account, French MP Mariani underlined that the rockets came from the area controlled by Fateh al-Sham (formerly known as Al Nusra, Syrian branch of Al Qaeda) who fights against Syrian government led by Bashar Al Assad.
“Nice ‘moderate’ rebels’?” MP Mariani sarcastically asks on Twitter.
Now, French delegation has arrived in Damascus.
