In such a way the dictatorial regime of Assad is trying to establish control over the road leading into the city, according to a report of Amnesty International human rights international organization.
During the investigation, the human rights activists gathered irrefutable evidences that the troops of Assad and the Russian Federation have attacked six hospitals, a health center and residential building in the north of Syria for the past three months.
“Within the framework of action aimed to complete the devastation on the eve of the offensive on Aleppo and surrounding areas, even underground hospitals have been completely destroyed,” the Amnesty International reports.
Human rights defenders stressed that such acts are qualified as war crimes.
Syrian and Russian forces deliberately attacked medical facilities, thereby grossly violating international humanitarian law. But really shocking is the fact that erasing the hospitals is obviously a part of their military strategy,” said the Director of Amnesty International Crisis ProgramTirana Hassan.
