The Afrin massacre becomes more brutal by the day. On top of the bombs indiscriminately dropped on the center of Syrian Kurdistan’s main city for weeks, Turkish raids are now targeting hospitals and those who are leaving town. The international community has cried scandal for similar crimes in other contexts.
On Saturday, il manifesto reported on how Afrin’s main hospital was at breaking point, with large numbers of wounded and scarce resources amid the siege of the city and a drug and food embargo.
On Friday night, the Turkish air force struck the hospital three times, killing at least 16 people, including some children and a pregnant woman. The Turkish government denied the allegation, and it released aerial footage captured by a drone, saying it struck printers instead. But the images prove Ankara bombed the hospital.
