MOSCOW (Sputnik) — MSF said the hospital in the northwestern Syrian city of Maarat al-Numan, in the Idlib province, was hit by four rockets earlier on Monday. It did not say which of the warring parties was suspected to be behind the attack.
"5 patients, a caretaker and a hospital guard were killed & 8 members of staff are missing, presumed dead," the MSF said on Twitter.
Last week, at least three people were killed and six wounded in airstrikes on a MSF-supported hospital in the Daraa province in southwestern Syria.
Syria has been mired in a civil war since 2011, with government forces loyal to President Bashar Assad fighting a number of opposition factions and terrorist groups, such as Daesh and al-Nusra Front.
