Russia-hospital allegedly destroyed

Russian Defense Ministry publishes aerial photos of hospital allegedly destroyed in Syria

The Russian Defense Ministry said it has conducted a thorough check of all the “facts” which determined the complete groundlessness of the published “video evidence” which allegedly showed that Russian airstrikes had been carried out on the hospital in Sarmin.

The Ministry posted aerial photographs taken on October 31 (after the alleged date of the airstrike on the hospital) which show the building of the hospital in Sarmin and the surrounding buildings, and that the hospitals and the houses around them are intact and undamaged, and the streets around them aren’t damaged either, in contrast to the video footage published by Western media.

According to the Ministry, the towns (al-Eis, al-Hader, Khan Tuman, Latamna and al-Zirba) where hospitals were allegedly bombed by the Russian Air Force have no hospitals at all.


5 of 6 Syrian Hospitals Allegedly Hit by Russian Airstrikes Don’t Exist

The Russian Defense Ministry strongly rejected western media allegations that it has bombed hospitals in Syria, saying that five of the six hospitals mentioned in these reports do not exist at all.

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.
