At least 61 killed in Aleppo airstrikes, including Doctors Without Borders staff, patients in ‘deliberate’ hospital hit

At least 27 people, including children, were killed at a hospital in Aleppo, Syria overnight, activists said Thursday, in what Secretary of State John Kerry called a “deliberate [air]strike” by government forces on a “known medical facility.”

The incident was part of a wave of nighttime airstrikes by Syrian warplanes in embattled Aleppo that killed at least 61 people overall. An official from the Syrian opposition claimed Russia may have also participated in the strikes.

Some of the overnight strikes hit the well-known al-Quds field hospital in the Sukkari district in Aleppo, according to Doctors Without Borders, opposition activists and rescue workers. They said 14 doctors and patients were among the dead.

    This is BS if it was a targeted strike most real American GI’s would have targeted Kerry. this was a mistake, a terrible mistake but a mistake for sure we are not Russians we dont target hospitals.

    As is well known, supervised by US (CIA), the Syrian rebels back in 2013 used chemical weapons to blame Assad for the massacre of civilians. The only one intentionally air striking a MSF/DWB hospital in Afghanistan because was treating Taliban operatives injured in combat is US. The only one with target specific bombs in Syria is US. The only one benefiting from attacking hospitals in the Al Quida dominated area of Allepo with no remorse, with weapons already in use (and planes available for their use) and to give support to rebels is US.

    Get over it – the Cruz carpet bombing plan would have had the same effect.
