An airstrike hit a hospital in the opposition-held Syrian village of Awaijel, west of Aleppo, killing at least one person yesterday morning, a day after attacks on two other hospitals in the region, a war monitor said, revealing deepening humanitarian crisis in the war-torn city of Aleppo.
Jets hit Awaijel's Baghdad hospital with rockets, injuring medical staff and patients including some who had just moved there from a hospital hit in nearby Kafr Naha on Monday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. The attack put the hospital in Awaijel out of service, it added.
A third hospital in the town of Atareb was hit five times in the early hours of Monday, the human rights group added. The strikes destroyed operating rooms and the hospital pharmacy, damaged ambulances and wounded medical staff. The hospitals in Atareb and Kafr Naha have both been hit by previous air strikes.
Western countries and human rights activists have accused the air forces of Assad and Moscow of repeatedly targeting hospitals, bread lines and other civilian infrastructure in the territory controlled by the opposition.
As the humanitarian situation worsens in Aleppo, the United Nations said last week that food rations has run out in east Aleppo, as the quarter of a million people besieged in the Syrian city entered what is expected to be a cruel winter. Some families in the opposition-held area have not had food distributions for several weeks and food prices are skyrocketing, the U.N. humanitarian adviser Jan Egeland said last Thursday. The Syrian regime rejected a U.N. request to send aid to east Aleppo during November, he added.
