At Least 9 Lost Their Lives after Air Strikes Hit Doctors without Borders Backed Hospital in Syria

According to the reporters, a hospital supported by Doctors without Borders in Syria, had been hit by the suspected Russian air strikes on Monday. Not less than nine people had lost their lives including a child, as said by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

It had been confirmed by the MSF spokesman that a hospital supported by the aid group had been struck in Maaret al Numan, which is about 280 km north of Damascus, but was not able to give a death toll.

According to the Observatory, which relies on a network of sources on the ground, the raids had also left dozens injured.

Around 150 hospitals in Syria had been supported by the organization.

Last week, not less than three people had lost their lives and at least six were injured in the air strikes on a MSF supported hospital in the Daraa province in the south western Syria.

As said by an aid official, at least one patient lost his life and nine Syrian staffers are still missing. The official asked for anonymity as he was not permitted to give any information to the media.
