Syria: Pro-Assad forces bomb 2 hospitals in rural Aleppo as clashes intensify
Relentless bombing by the Syrian government and Russian forces has targeted towns, villages and two hospitals in northwest Syria, as Turkish officials in Moscow desperately seek a ceasefire.
Territory in the Idlib and Aleppo countrysides is falling fast to forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad, which on Monday said they had captured dozens of towns as they continue to push ahead with an offensive.
The fighting’s frontline is mainly in the western Aleppo countryside, where the town of Darat Izza and two hospitals were heavily bombed.
Adnan al-Imam, an activist from the outskirts of Aleppo city, said Russian jets were believed responsible for the eight missiles fired at the hospitals.
