Russians’ hospital strikes ‘a war crime’
RUSSIA’s bombing of Syrian hospitals is undoubtedly a war crime, ex-international development secretary Andrew Mitchell has claimed.
Moscow has denied being responsible for an attack on a facility in Idlib province run by Medecins Sans Frontieres.
But Mr Mitchell ( above) claims Russia is guilty of breaking international laws.
He said: “It’s certainly a war crime. The Russian Air Force has now hit 30 hospitals in Syria of which only one is in an Islamic State area.
“Everyone knew this was a Medecins Sans Frontieres hospital and undoubtedly this is a breach of the international law and the Russians are guilty of that.”
But a spokesman for Russian president Vladimir Putin denied the attacks.
