An airstrike on a pediatric hospital in Syria has killed 27 people, including children, rights groups say, as the U.N. warns that a nationwide “cessation of hostilities” is under serious threat of collapse.
The U.N. special envoy to Syria, Staffan de Mistura, warned at a news conference in Geneva Thursday that a humanitarian disaster was unfolding in Syria with increased fighting in Aleppo and three other locations.
Al Quds field hospital, situated in a rebel-held neighborhood in Aleppo, was hit by a missile from a fighter jet Wednesday, witnesses said. It’s unclear for which side in the conflict the fighter jet was flying.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that 27 people were killed at the hospital, including at least three children and three doctors. A civil defense worker at the scene also reported that the death toll was 27.
