The US Department of State accused Russian and Syrian jets of hitting civilian targets in the cities of Idlib and Hama, US Department of State Spokesperson Heather Nauert said, citing unnamed sources.

“The United States is concerned by reports of airstrikes in Idlib province and northern Hama province on September 19 and 20 that killed at least three medical personnel and damaged a number of medical facilities, emergency equipment, and civil defense centers,” Nauert said in a statement.

According to the US Department of State, “these attacks fit an all-too-familiar pattern in which medical facilities and personnel – and the civilians they serve – are victims of strikes by the Syrian regime and its Russian allies.”

The statement itself is headlined “Civilian Victims of Syrian and Russian Airstrikes in Idlib and Hama Provinces.”
The Department of State has so far failed to respond to a TASS request to clarify sources for those accusations.

This spokesperson looks as if she’s sitting in the toilet. And her words are of the same quality as the excrements in that toilet. 🙂

Those “unnamed sources” will probably be a ragman from Coventry UK, known as SOHR.

“all-too-familiar pattern” – right, it is so boring reading this, do you (us) know to say anything else?

This bit of “news” seems to have disappeared down the history hole. Nothing on State Department’s or Heather Nauert’s Twitter feeds that I can find.
And when I searched on “Heather Nauert medical facilities Syria” Google returned two links to the “news” about the Saydnaya “crematorium”. Will Heather Nauert be “seeking opportunities” elsewhere?

The US is upset Russia is starting to hit its HTS proxy and that they wont be able to protect their terrorist friends in Idlib so they have to make claims of civilian targeting. Its also a way to distract from the fact that the US has flattened Raqqa with airstrikes.

They’re business studies students….all they know is “buy the lie.” Here’s the attitude, “If everyone else is lying and you don’t…you lose.” It’s all twisted PR, sales, marketing, promos, branding, behavioural psychology. The Godfather of DAESH is right. It’s “Mad Men” conquered your US Govt, dude!
