The Turkish regime has accused the Russian Federation of carrying out an airstrike over the Idlib Governorate city of Ma’arat Al-Nu’man that reportedly killed a number of civilians.

Based on a UN report, an airstrike hit a Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) in the Jabhat Al-Nusra (Syrian Al-Qaeda) controlled city of Ma’arat Al-Nu’man, killing at least 7 people while at least 8 others remain missing and “presumed dead” by local officials.

The local hospital was able to treat as many as 1,500 in the historical city of Ma’arat Al-Nu’man.

Syria’s Ambassador to Russia accused the U.S. Air Force of carrying out the attack, citing “intelligence information” that proves American planes struck the hospital.

Russia’s Minister of Health Veronika Skvortsova stressed that Russian airplanes specifically target Jihadist sites, adding that “we are confident that [there is] no way could it be done by our defense forces; this contradicts our ideology.”

According to a UN Spokesperson Farhan Haqq, close to 50 people have been killed by Russian airstrikes in northern Syria, citing that as many as 5 medical facilities and 2 schools were among the sites destroyed.
