Another hospital supported by Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) in northern Syria along with the Women and Children’s Hospital not far away, were bombed within hours of each other.  Around 50 civilians, including children, were killed in reported bombings of at least five medical facilities and two schools in Syria’s provinces of Aleppo and Idlib. One of the targeted hospitals that was supported by MSF was a clear deliberate attack as it received multiple strikes at different times.

The Syrian Ambassador to Moscow, Riad Haddad, said airstrikes were carried out by U.S. planes.  “It was destroyed by the American Air Force. The Russian Air Force has nothing to do it with,” the envoy said.

In Syria, the U. S. and Saudi-led coalition has been conducting air raids since September 2014 without any authorization from Syria or a UN mandate.

The U.S. has a long standing history of destabilizing techniques in the region including arming and supplying ISIS/ISIL terrorists and moderate rebels while trying to over throw the current Syrian government.  Similar techniques were used in Libya to remove Gaddafi as well as Sadam in Iraq.

Since late September 2015, Russia has been conducting airstrikes against against ISIS/ISIL in Syria upon a request by the Syrian government.

U.S., Turkish, and Saudi backed ‘moderate rebels’ also just engaged in a bombing campaign in Syrian residential neighborhoods. The western mainstream press is currently refusing to report any accuracy and correct detailed accounts; blaming Russia and the Syrian government without investigation or explanation of the circumstances.

Russia stated the allegations that they are behind the hospitals and schools being bombed is information warfare.

The U.S., British, Saudi coalition includes Turkey and have been responsible for  previous attacks on Doctors Without Borders in other countries that have been sited as war crimes by the United Nations.  President Barrack Obama apologized for one previous hospital bombing claiming it was an accident after the administration changed accounts several times.  Doctors Without Borders launched a petition for an independent investigation into war crimes that the U.S. has refused to comply with.

Turkey just expanded it’s war campaign in Syria violating international treaty.
