  1. Attack on displacement camp in northern Syria is a disturbing low says, the IRC

  2. May 6, 2016 1:56 PM EDT - In response to yesterday's attack on a camp for displaced Syrians, which left dozens of civilians dead and wounded, the International Rescue Committee Turkey's Deputy Director of Programs, Meghan Garrity said:
  3. "The killing of innocent people in a place where they had hoped to find safety is abhorrent. This is a disturbing new low in a war that has already shocked the world with routine attacks against hospitals, schools and bakeries. And it’s not the first such attack: The IRC is aware of seven other displacement camps that have been hit by airstrikes or indirect fire since March."
