Syrian Jets Now Bomb Hospitals in Rebel Areas; Killed 11 in Idlib Province Hospitals in Past Week

Syrian warplanes have killed 11 people in strikes against hospitals in rebel-held Idlib province in the past week, the News Daily website reports today (August 15, 2015).

"These attacks...indicate an increasing pattern of healthcare structures and civilians being affected as a result of the ongoing war," the international charity Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) said yesterday.

Three hospital workers were among the dead, and 31 others were wounded in the strikes, which occurred between August 7 and 10.

Fighting in Syria's ongoing 4-year-old civil war -- which has killed over a quarter of a million people -- has seen increasing attacks on Syria's healthcare facilities, with the majority being carried out by government forces.
