US condemns strikes on hospitals in north Syria

The attacks on civilians casts doubt on Russia's willingness to help stop the continued brutality of the Assad regime against its own people, the US said.

Columbia: The United States Monday condemned air strikes that hit two civilian hospitals in and around northern Syria's Aleppo, identifying them as one run by Medecins Sans Frontieres and the Women's and Children's Hospital in the city of Aziz.

"That the Assad regime and its supporters would continue these attacks, without cause and without sufficient regard for international obligations to safeguard innocent lives, flies in the face of the unanimous calls by the ISSG, including in Munich, to avoid attacks on civilians and casts doubt on Russia's willingness and/or ability to help bring to a stop the continued brutality of the Assad regime against its own people," the State Department said.
