Warplanes kill 11 in rebel northwest hospitals

Three hospital workers were among the dead, and 31 others were wounded in the strikes, which took place between Aug. 7 and 10.

Syrian planes strike hospitals in rebel northwest, killing 11.

Syrian warplanes have killed 11 people in strikes against hospitals in rebel-held Idlib province in the past week, the international charity Medecins Sans Frontieres said on Friday.

"These attacks ... indicate an increasing pattern of healthcare structures and civilians being affected as a result of the ongoing war," MSF said in a statement.

MSF's head of mission for Syria, Sylvain Groulx, said hospitals in Idlib city, capital of the province, had suffered bombardments since it fell to a coalition of Islamist insurgents in March.
