Somalia / Statement Attributable to the Spokesperson for the Secretary-General

Statement Attributable to the Spokesperson for the Secretary-General

 

 

The Secretary-General is deeply concerned about the heavy fighting

over the weekend in Somalia’s capital, Mogadishu, and he deplores the

substantial loss of life and injuries among the civilian population.

 

He urges parties to the conflict in Mogadishu to refrain from the

indiscriminate and disproportionate use of force that endangers the

lives of civilians, particularly in heavily populated civilian areas,

and reminds them that any targeting of non-combatants is a violation of

international humanitarian law.
