The latest Russian-regime bombing in northwest Syria has destroyed the
Al-Quds Hospital in Aleppo city, causing multiple casualties.



Local journalists and activists put the death toll at *more than 50
including *13 women and 15 children

casualties are likely to rise, as dozens of people were trapped under

Activists said that Russian and Syrian warplanes dropped more than 250
bombs in and near Aleppo last night.

A rescuer at the scene says, “I don’t know if I’m now standing on the
bodies of women and children”:

More than a dozen hospitals in Aleppo city had already been closed because
of the airstrikes, leaving only a few operating. Among the casualties on
Wednesday night was the last pediatrician in east Aleppo, Muhammad Maaz.

Journalists from the website Vocativ *toured the latest destroyed hospital
last year
Dr Hamza al-Khatib recalled that a Palestinian colleague asked, “Why don’t
you give the GPS coordinates of the hospital to the regime so they won’t
hit it?”

Al-Khatib laughed bitterly and continued:

Why would the regime be killing the children? Why would the regime be
killing the women, the old people? Why would they be hitting with chemical
weapons?. [Assad] has crossed all the lines.


The doctor, who served two hospitals, said he would not leave:

People here don’t think about the future. We live each day by each day. At
any time a rocket could come and destroy this hospital…but until then, we
have patients, and we have to treat them.

It is not known if al-Khatib survived last night’s attack.
