A major hospital in Aleppo was destroyed with "bunker-buster bombs" by the Russia-backed Syria regime on Monday. Three maintenance workers were among those killed, a medical charity said.
The M10 hospital in Aleppo's opposition-held east was "completely destroyed" following strikes over the past week, according to the Syrian American Medical Society (SAMS). "The hospital is now not usable at all," said SAMS spokesman Adham Sahloul. "It is not salvageable, per reports from the staff and doctors there."
Four hospitals in opposition-held Aleppo have been destroyed during the Russia-backed air campaign in the past week, leaving just five intensive care beds for 250,000 people, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) said. "We are gathered to express our sadness and consternation but also our indignation," Joanne Liu, president of MSF International, told the crowd gathered outside Geneva University Hospital.
World Health Organization spokeswoman Fadela Chaib said that many of the 250,000 people trapped in opposition-held eastern Aleppo lacked health services after repeated bombings of hospitals. "We have now only six partially functional hospitals that are in service, only one hospital offers trauma care services," she told a briefing.
Opposition groups said on Tuesday they repelled an Assad forces' offensive in southern Aleppo as Russian warplanes continued to pound residential areas in besieged parts of the city where thousands of civilians are trapped. They said they inflicted losses on Assad fighters after several hours of clashes on the fringe of Sheikh Saed district, at the southern edge of the opposition-held eastern half of Aleppo city. Aleppo assault is backed by an air campaign by President Bashar al-Assad's regime and its allies that has hit hospitals, destroyed infrastructure and caused hundreds of civilian casualties.
