In an interview with TV channel “Russia 24”, which quotes Agency “Interfax”, the Ambassador of Syria Riad Haddad said that the hospital was destroyed by the American air force. “As for the hospital, which was destroyed, actually it was destroyed by the U.S. air force. Russian air and space forces do not have anything to do with it,” said the diplomat.
His words Haddad explained by the presence of the Syrian intelligence authorities.
According to “Doctors without borders”, as a result of the air strike, the hospital was destroyed. Physicians acknowledged the death of seven people, 8 are still missing. In an official statement of the organization, which leads the Agency Associated Press, suggests that they too are dead.
Previously, a UK-based Syrian monitoring centre for human rights claimed that the strike on field hospital allegedly inflicted on Russian planes based in Syria.
The hospital, which suffered an airstrike, located in the town of Maaret al-Numan, Idlib province. This area is controlled by opponents of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, including fighters, not terrorist organisation “jabhat al-al-Nusra”.
In the US Department of State claim that the aircraft is not operating in the area of Idlib and Aleppo, making attacks on extremists in the Eastern provinces of Syria.
The defense Ministry has repeatedly denied the information about the strikes to Russian forces on the civilian population, stressing that blows air force focused exclusively on place-based terrorists. Messages about the attack on the hospital in Maaret al-Numan, the defense Ministry has not commented on
