America is surging ahead in one key military sector, hospital bombing and confirmed kills of both doctors and patients.
Russia’s Defense Ministry denied the existence of five of the six Syrian hospitals that the western media claim it has hit during its airstrikes in recent weeks, Sputnik reported.
“I would like to remind you that a week ago several leading Western media outlets citing the US-based Syrian American Medical Society accused us of allegedly bombing hospitals in al-Ees, al-Hader, Khan Tuman, Sarmin, Latamna and al-Zirba,” ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov told reporters.
“We investigated this information. It turned out, in fact, that there is a hospital only in the settlement of Sarmin. There are no hospitals in al-Ees, al-Hader, Khan Tuman, Latamna and al-Zirba, and, consequently, there are no healthcare workers,” he added.
Russia has been conducting precision airstrikes against ISIL positions in Syria at the request of President Bashar al-Assad since September 30.
