Three Syrian Hospitals bombed since Russia began airstrikes

At least twelve people at Sarmin hospital in Idlib province were killed on Tuesday after two airstrikes hit the medical facility making it the third Syrian hospital to be bombed since late September.

 

Physicians for Human Rights has documented three hundred and seven attacks on medical facilities and six hundred and seventy medical workers killed since March 2011.

 

The human rights group reported that the Syrian government has been responsible for more than 90% the attacks against medical facilities.

 

Witnesses and medical personnel said that since Russian forces began bombing the region airstrikes have become very accurate displacing far more people than before and systematically targeting medical facilities depriving civilians of life saving access to healthcare.

 

The two other medical facilities hit by airstrikes were al-Harb and al-Eis clinics in Aleppo province.
