Russian war corresponded Evgeny Poddubny shared a video (allegedly received from the Syrian military) of artillery strikes on positions of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham near the village of Al Atarib in western Aleppo. The video shows that strikes pound apparent military infrastructure.
At the same time, Turkish propaganda claimed that the strikes hit killed six civilians, including a child when it hit a surgical hospital in the very same area. Turkey’s defense ministry claimed that Syrian government artillery fire hit the hospital’s main entrance inside a cave. Apparently, Hayat Tahrir al-Sham militants were that ‘civilians’ mentioned in reports by Turkish sources.
Russian Telegram channel ‘REVERSE SIDE OF MEDAL’ made a brief breakdown showing fortifications, underground tunnels and other military-styled infrastructure near the alleged ‘civilian hospital’.
Even if the facility mentioned by Turkish propaganda was somehow used for ‘civilian purposes’, its intentional placement just at positions of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham and similar groups were an apparent war crime aimed at leading to casualties among ‘civilians’ as a result of the expected and logical strikes on terrorist targets and infrastructure.
