H11 syria bombing

In Syria, witnesses said warplanes bombed a pair of hospitals in the rebel-held province of Idlib on Thursday, killing 10 people, including two newborn babies. The Union of Medical Care and Relief Organizations says eight medical facilities in Idlib were deliberately attacked so far this month, leaving thousands without access to medical care. Local medics said either Russian or Syrian planes were to blame for the assaults. The attacks came as Israel launched a series of airstrikes around Damascus’s main airport. The strikes appeared to target weapons caches bound for Hezbollah in neighboring Lebanon.
