MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to MSF, 13 health facilities in Syria have been hit since the start of 2016.

"The strike on Tafas field hospital, some 12 km [7.5 miles] from the Jordanian border, took place on the night of 5 February," the MSF said in a statement.

The MSF cited a staff member as saying that the hospital is the latest medical facility to be hit in an escalating series of airstrikes in southern Syria over the past two months. "I was on my way to the hospital to help admit people who had been injured by the airstrikes," says one staff member.

"This latest incident further weakens Syria’s already exhausted health care system, and prevents more people from accessing desperately needed medical care," the statement said.
