Russia denies US news report it bombed 4 Syria hospitals in 12 hours

Russia denies US news report it bombed 4 Syria hospitals in 12 hoursRussia on Monday denied a US newspaper report that its warplanes bombed four hospitals in rebel-held territory in Syria over a period of 12 hours this year. The Russian defence ministry rubbished the claim in a report by The New York Times, saying “the alleged ‘evidence’ provided by the NYT is not worth even the paper it was printed on”. The May strikes — which the newspaper tied to Moscow through Russian radio recordings, plane spotter logs and accounts by witnesses — are part of a larger pattern of medical facilities targeted by forces supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the country’s devastating civil war.
