Western nations which include the EU, Arab League, France, Britain and Germany all expressed their shock against the latest shelling in Syria, where 90 people were killed and 32 of them were children under the age of 10 as confirmed by UN.
The BBC reported that all western nations will meet for a meeting this week, which will be spearheaded by the UK Foreign Secretary William Hague. Also, the US is calling for an end to Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad's "rule by murder and fear must come to an end.”
The said attack, which sparked international condemnation, was considered by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and UN-Arab League envoyas one of the bloodiest since the brokered international ceasefire came in effect six weeks ago.
French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, who condemns the violence on Friday, said he would meet Annan on Sunday and also called Friends of Syria working group on Saturday for a meeting in Paris. The group includes Western and Arab nations, but not Russia or China as the two nations reportedly blocked previous attempts to introduce UN sanctions.
Fabius demanded the U.N. observers, who are currently deployed in the war-torn country to complete their mission on implementing the six-point peace plan of envoy Annan.
