Attack on Aleppo hospital is a “war crime”

NCRI – Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, has described the bombing of a hospital in Aleppo by Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad’s forces last week as a “war crime.”

Mrs. Rajavi “strongly condemned” the deadly strike last Wednesday which led to the deaths of dozens of people including children and doctors, adding that Assad’s forces are being backed by the Iranian regime on the orders of the mullahs’ Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.

At least 27 staff and patients were killed when Assad’s air force attacked the Al Quds Hospital in Aleppo, even though its location was well known and the hospital was assisted by the international charity Doctors Without Borders.

An online campaign to halt the carnage in Aleppo has picked up speed, with Twitter users posting pictures of destroyed buildings in flames with the hashtag #AleppoIsBurning.
