Russia denies hospital bombing

The Kremlin has denied reports that the Russian air force bombed hospitals in northern Syria on Wednesday, saying there was no evidence to back up such claims.

Aid organisations accused Russia of deliberately targeting hospitals on Monday, in strikes that killed dozens.

“We categorically do not accept such statements, the more so as every time those making these statements are unable to prove their unfounded accusations in any way,” said Dmitry Peskov, Vladimir Putin’s press secretary, on Tuesday.
