The State Department accused Assad and his allies in the destruction of hospitals

Doctors Without Borders (MSF) reported shelling of a hospital and children's hospital in northern Syria. At the same time, employees of the organization believe that medical facilities were destroyed by troops loyal to Bashar al-Assad, reports RIA News.


The State Department accused Assad and his allies in the destruction of hospitals


In connection with the MSF report, the State Department issued a statement in which it noted: “The Assad regime and its supporters are making such attacks, which is contrary to the Munich accords.”

According to the agency, “what is happening calls into question Russia's readiness and / or the opportunity to help stop the continuing brutality of the Assad regime against its own people.”

"We again call on all parties to stop attacks on civilians and take the necessary steps to ensure access for humanitarian aid, as well as to stop the fighting, which the Syrian people so need," the statement said.

In turn, the representative of MSF Francoise Boucher-Solnier said that the organization expects from Moscow to provide data on what goals were hit on Monday by Russian aircraft.

“Today we have an assumption that the hospital was destroyed either as a result of a Russian attack aviationor by Syrian government forces. We proceed from this assumption, since the responsibility of the Russian authorities cannot be excluded today. All we can ask is for the Russian authorities to talk about what were the goals for defeating Russian aircraft today in northern Syria, ”
said Bouss Sunier.

According to her, “the only way for the Russian side to take responsibility is to report on what targets were hit by Russian planes and Syrian troops today in northern Syria,” and also state that “at the time when the strikes were carried out, only Syrian army planes carried out flights over this city and this hospital. "

“The hospital, whose work was supported by Doctors Without Borders, was destroyed as a result of four accurate shells hit the building. In total, there were about 15 strikes on the positions around the hospital ... It was not like a mistake or incidental losses, it is rather an aimed defeat of targets, ”said Boucher-Saulnier.

According to her, as a result of the blows, 7 people died (five patients, a companion and one hospital employee) and 8 people went missing from the medical staff.

“There are no doubts that they have died at the moment. So we get an 15 person in fact, ”said an MSF spokeswoman.

            Not shells, but rockets. So, it is quite possible that they flew from the turret. The Syrian ambassador said that no one would be allowed to the scene of the incident. "Anyway, everything will be twisted," he said.

              Interesting things turn out! It is reported:
              1. Earlier, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said that a Russian missile hit the hospital.
              2. "It seems that these actions were carried out by the regime with the support of its supporters, but I cannot say for sure who," said Susan Rice, the US national security adviser. (Says, straight, like "cutie" Psaki!)
              Those. the US has NO evidence of Russian guilt.
              3. Syrian Ambassador to Moscow Riyad Haddad said the hospital was destroyed by the US Air Force.

            The Syrian Human Rights Monitoring Center claims that the Russian airborne forces attacked and nine people died as a result of the incident. According to human rights activists, as a result of the airstrike, the four-story building of the hospital was badly damaged.

            It should be noted that no other evidence has been received, apart from a statement by a human rights organization that the Russian military could bomb the temporary hospital.

            A week ago, Médecins Sans Frontières announced an air raid on a hospital in the Syrian province of Deraa, which killed three people.

            In October 2015, the Doctors Without Borders hospital in Afghan Kunduz was bombarded. The shelling killed 42 people. The bombed hospital after what happened stopped working.

            Explaining the blow to the hospital, the Afghan authorities said that it was used by Taliban militants as a base and, allegedly, fire was fired on by coalition forces from there before the airstrike. Doctors Without Borders representatives outraged. They noted that the hospital’s airstrike was targeted because the buildings nearby were not damaged, and therefore, with such statements, US authorities are trying to justify the attack on the hospital.

            The Doctors Without Borders organization called for an international investigation into the airstrike, while insisting that the case be considered a war crime.

            The start of their own investigation into the incident with the bombing of the hospital was reported by NATO representatives, who do not exclude the possibility that the US Air Force may be involved in an air raid on the hospital.

            Two weeks later, a source in the American intelligence services reported that US intelligence knew that the bombing facility in Afghan Kunduz was a hospital. Moreover, he had corresponding marks on the maps.

            In early January, a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Yemen was hit by an aircraft. Three people became victims of airstrike in Sa'ada province, another 10 people were injured when a rocket hit. Who struck, is not specified. As specified, the hospital is located in the province of Saada, controlled by Hussite rebels.

      Aren't the Americans the main experts in the destruction of hospitals? When they bomb peaceful targets, the State Department is either silent or speaks of a "mistake." And at the same time they call their ammunition "high-precision". And the SAR army for high-precision and the means, and experts for their use. And finally, this incident took place in the north of Syria, i.e. near the Turkish border ... No, not the Syrians have worked most likely.

      The Syrian International Support Group (IHL) agreed on the delivery of humanitarian aid to the besieged areas this week, and also agreed to “prepare modalities that will determine the cessation of hostilities” during the week.

      That's all. No one promised anything else.
      But the Americans hoped that this would be a surrender like in Minsk, after which the bandits would restore their potential and again go on the attack.
      The continuation and, most importantly, the successful offensive is an unpleasant surprise. So they fight in hysterics.

    In fact, bombing MSF is an American habit. I remember that recently, when we all felt sorry for the doctors whom the "valiant" American pilots covered in Afghanistan, someone here, at VO, even offered to present the S-300 to doctors. They regretted ... Now, apparently, "Doctors ..." have been told where they SHOULD look for the guilty ...

    And what happens? Recall a similar Afghan feat - the amers' wine and their lying lies were reliably established until they were pressed.

    Here everything is as before:

    1. Someone fired at the hospital.
    2. Assad and Russia are to blame, of course. "They also destroyed the chapel".
    3. When the wave of general indignation subsides, it turns out that either the Americans or the bearded are to blame civilians.

    Something is not clean there, in such cases, the aviation routes are confirmed by photo control, photo control is provided by the side that controls the airspace over the territory, which means there is a "clear sky" over Syria and it is not clear who controls it, and there are three sides of the Turks, the coalition and Russia, well, maybe Iran and Iraq. If there is no objective control data, then this was done specifically to train media eloquence.

    US Presidential Assistant for National Security Susan Rice said the US authorities have no evidence that the blame for airstrikes on civilian targets in Syria lies with Russia. According to Rice, she cannot explain what exactly happened there. It is possible that the Syrian government forces and their allies were involved in this. But it is not yet clear who exactly is responsible for the bombing of buildings and hospitals.

    That's it. It has long been known that only states work this way. It is on civilian objects and precisely sighting. And hospitals - this is generally a favorite facility for state aviation - and it’s safe, and you can blame someone else if you turn it quietly. And if they catch it, they easily admit a mistake, but not malicious intent.

    And I personally would not be surprised if the jokers from the State Department initiate compensation claims against the Russian Federation "for the damage incurred as a result of the Russian bombing." The term "genocide" will also emerge. And the organizations "traders of shawarma without borders", "tire fitters without borders" will roll out the accounts.

According to the organization "Médecins Sans Frontières", the following was announced, the hospital was hit by air strikes, but whose planes were not indicated, not a word about Russia 8:00 Euronews channel today, I want to note this is not the first time that I notice distortions of facts information, while the sky in Syria is a mess, you can declare aliens as with Boeing in Ukraine, and if you also pay for the right people, then soon we will not hear and see

    With the State Department, everything has long been clear. I have already said that our media need to work more actively on the western front. We need a complete discredit of the NATO Armed Forces coalition. Let the people read and enjoy ...

    I carefully read all the comments.
    I did not find anything intelligible, in almost all comments only about the State Department. And where is the discussion about the mechanism of formation of destruction.
    As correctly written here by one single author, according to the number of strikes, and 15 of them, it does not look like air strikes, most likely artillery.
    Is there really no military here, but everyone like me)))
    Please write an opinion from the point of view of a military man, and not about the State Department. About the State Department, I know without you)))
    Thank you.

      Dear Dalmatia, in order to concretize something, facts are needed, and this can be obtained either on the spot, or from photos, video documents, besides, the fighters themselves can carry out shelling, alas, unfortunately, not wine people die

    The representative of the organization Lies Without Borders, Françoise Boucher-Saulnier, said that “the only opportunity for the Russian side to relieve responsibility is to report on what targets were hit by Russian planes and Syrian troops today in northern Syria,” and also to state that “at the moment when the strikes were made, only the planes of the Syrian army flew over this city and this hospital. "

    Rather, it will be stated that it was the planes of the Western coalition that bombed, which, by the way, is a fact.
    “The only opportunity for the Russian side to relieve responsibility is to report on what targets were hit by Russian planes

    Better yet, close the skies of Syria for the Western coalition, this is the best way to protect yourself from provocateurs.

    The organization "Doctors Without Borders", in Chechnya I still remember "Enemies without Borders", the CIA contractors. No faith in them.

    In turn, the representative of MSF Francoise Boucher-Solnier said that the organization expects from Moscow to provide data on what goals were hit on Monday by Russian aircraft.

    He lies and requires something else. And ... does not blush, most likely. I'm used to it.

    For "obtaining evidence" it was necessary to immediately shoot down a bomb thrower at hospitals. And then there would be one fewer "fighters against hospitals". And so - just words.
    By the way, today it turned out that Hillary Clinton likes to bark like a dog. Well, they have politics! When there are no arguments, you have to bark.
