Russian forces uncovered and destroyed a network of underground tunnels that militants had equipped for the use as a field hospital.
The Russian Defense Ministry’s Zvezda TV reported that it was created in 2015 and militants used this underground hospital until 2019. Thick, several tens of meters of rock ceilings reliably protected the facility from artillery and air strikes.
The underground network was captured during the large offensive by the Syrian Army with the support of the Russian Aerospace Forces in southern Idlib. Militants took most of the medical equipment and medicines – all foreign-made – with them during the retreat.
