Airstrikes reportedly destroyed a Pediatrics and Gynecology hospital on 12th August 2016 in Kafr Hamra. At least three civilians were killed, and seven or more wounded, mostly members of a medical staff, women, or children. Some of the personnel working in the hospital were affected; both a nurse and an ambulance driver were killed in addition to another medical staff member that was injured.
Photos published by the Syrian Network for Human Rights showed the destruction of patients’ rooms and storage areas of the hospital.
Sources were conflicted as to whether the regime or Russia was responsible for the airstrikes. While the majority of sources, including the Shaam News, attributed the attacks to Russian planes, a few sources, including the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and @ALAMAWI, blamed the regime for the attacks. The Syrian Network for Human Rights said that “government warplanes and its allies” were responsible.
A number of sources noted the use of artillery in Kafr Hamra on this day.
The local time of the incident is unknown.
