Syrian planes bomb building near hospital

2012-11-22 11:01

Beirut — Syrian activists say warplanes have flattened a building next to a hospital in the northern city of Aleppo, killing at least 13 people.

Rami Abdul-Rahman from the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says a doctor and two children were among those killed in the bombing on Wednesday night that struck near the city's Dar al-Shifa hospital.

The hospital was once a private clinic and now operates as a rebel field hospital that also treats civilians.

Abdul-Rahman says at least 10 fighters were killed, a doctor who worked at the hospital and two children who were on the street.

Another activist group, the Local Co-ordination Committees, confirmed the bombing and said 40 people died in airstrikes in Aleppo on Wednesday. It did not say how many died in the hospital strike.

    Aha - so its okay for Arab to kill Arab? Dont see any comments from all the Pro Palestine Arabs? Oh sorry - they are marching against Israel and spewing hatred on other News sites.... Condemn what is happening in Syria with the same hatred you use to condemn Israel!!! And while you at it - condemn Hamas for causing untold misery in Palestine - or do you like to see people used as human shields? Hamas has its missiles in towns and villages - brave Hamas - people should bring them down - Arab Spring kind of revolution!

    Angela, you must understand that for leftists it doesn't matter how many are killed but who does it. So if an Arab dictator murders 10000 Arabs you won't hear anything but if Jews kill 100 terrorists in self-defence they lose it.

      During the Syrian conflict there is no outcry about the innocent women and children killed and the innocent refugees having to flee. Guess when these things happen, they suddenly became guilty, hence the silence. They are only innocent when an Israeli plane is in the air?.....

      ag cumon, just because asaad is muslim has got nothing to with this... this is the same thing happening in zimbabwe, the same thing thats gona happen here in sa when suma gets a second term he's gona want a 3rd... its about power hungry dictators doing anything to stay in power, its got nothing to do with religion. btw there are lots of muslims praying, campaigning and condemning what asaad is doing... u just looking at the wrong forums, check the muslim websites, the ones run by muslims then u'll see... if u check western propaganda u wont know what the muslims are talking about

      avremel.niselow - 2012-11-22 14:29

      Ya seen note that I did not say Moslems but leftists, I am aware of the Moslem opposition to Assad.

      fred.fraser.12 - 2012-11-22 17:50

      Yaseen, I think the point is that there are zero posts from Muslims opposing Assad's slaughter. And when Jihadists blow themselves up, killing and maiming innocent civilians, Muslims usually blame the West. But when even a murmur about Israel appears, Muslims (mostly the violent racist kind) are out in force with the most outrageous and ridiculous comments imaginable. The sheer number of Muslims who do this unfortunately makes a mockery of your religion and culture.

    When is the UN going to give the ok to drop a bomb on assad palace to end this dictator

      avremel.niselow - 2012-11-22 12:53

      Only the security council can approve that and Russia and china will just veto it so they can continue to prop up their buddy Assad.
