Airstrikes in Syria this morning have struck a hospital.
On Twitter Médecins Sans Frontières says one of its hospitals in Southern Syria was struck.
It says three people have been killed and another six wounded.
Among the wounded is a nurse.
This is not the first time a hospital operated by the organization has been bombed.
In October of last year a hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan was struck by coalition bombs.
Twelve staff members and at least 10 patients, including three children were killed.
After this latest bombing Médecins Sans Frontières on its website put out a plea to protect civilian lives.
“This latest incident further depletes Syria’s already exhausted healthcare system, and prevents more people from accessing desperately needed medical care. With the Syrian conflict entering its sixth year, aerial bombardments in southern Syria are on the rise, and so are human casualties. The use of indiscriminate bombing has a severe impact on both civilians and medical facilities. Despite tireless calls by international organisations for an end to indiscriminate bombing, it appears to have become the new norm. Since the start of this year alone, 13 health facilities in Syria have been hit, confirming that hospitals and clinics are no longer places where patients can recover in safety.
In the light of this incident, MSF renews its calls for the protection of civilian life and the respect of health facilities by all parties to the conflict. MSF reiterates that the repeated attacks on medical facilities in the ongoing conflict constitute a flagrant violation of international laws.”
