2 female Russian medical specialists,, have been killed and more medics have been injured in a militant shelling of a mobile military hospital in Aleppo, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

“Today, between 12:21 and 12:30pm [local time], a medical center of the Russian Defense Ministry’s mobile hospital in Aleppo was shelled by the militants during the reception time,” ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov told journalists, adding that “as a result of the direct hit of the reception ward, one Russian military medic was killed [and] two medical specialists were severely injured.”


Some local residents attending medical appointments were also injured during the shelling that targeted one of the field hospitals set up in the government held part of the city, the ministry added.


The Russian Defense Ministry attributes the blame for the incident to “terrorists and their patrons in the US, the UK and France.

“It is beyond doubt that the shelling was conducted by the ‘opposition’ militants. Moscow understands who gave the Syrian militants the coordinates of the Russian hospital right at the moment when it started working,” Konashenkov said.

RT’s Lizzie Phelan reports from Aleppo that the city is subject to non-stop shelling by the militants and the hospital that was targeted was overcrowded with injured civilians, including children.


Syrian government forces are retaking neighbourhood after neighbourhood in eastern Aleppo.

But getting rid of the extremists, is only the first stage in making these areas safe for civilians again.

RT’s Lizzie Phealan has been accompanying the Syrian army into liberated parts of the city… where her crew filmed abandoned chemicals inside a local school.
