HI Condemns Bombing of MSF Hospital in Syria


On April 27, at least 14 people were killed in an airstrike on a hospital supported by Handicap International partner Médecins sans Frontières (Doctors without Borders) in Aleppo, Syria.

“This is a serious violation of international humanitarian law,” says Florence Daunis, Director of Operations at Handicap International. “This latest strike against a hospital reveals a total disregard for civilian lives. Handicap International is once again calling on all parties to the conflict in Syria to immediately refrain from launching air strikes against civilians. The organization is also demanding an investigation into these attacks. We would again like to express our support for the teams from Médecins sans Frontières.”

In February, two other Syrian medical facilities run by Médecins sans Frontières were targeted in air strikes, in Tafas and Marat al-Numan, in which around a dozen people were killed. Large numbers of health centers and hospitals in Syria have been hit in air strikes since the beginning of the year.

    How these terrorist can bomb a hospital where patients get treatment for their medical problems. This place is not an army camp or any military base to bomb killing patients and the staff. This site http://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/6/29/1676483/how-a-well-written-research-paper-differentiate-in-a-grade-and-failure is doing very good thing by publishing this type of news in their blog where this world will come to know about the problems facing by Syria citizens.

    They are brutal and they are not human being. I really condemn bombing on MSF hospital in Syria. It’s the act against the humankind around the world. We should do really hard towards this inhuman act. https://www.icann.org/profiles/cara-smith

    It’s so scary and sad how bad could be one person to brother. Sometimes I think that people are worse that animals…
