[ Ed.note – The US has “blood on its hands,” said Major Gen. Igor Konashenkov in a statement regarding the shelling by militants of a Russian field hospital in Western Aleppo. The shelling took place on Monday. I put up a post on it at the time. What we have here from Konashenkov (in the video above) is an unusually strong statement, perhaps in a manner of speaking shocking almost–given that Konashenkov is the official media spokesperson for the Russian Ministry of Defense…meaning it’s now the official position of the Russian government that the US assisted the militants by giving them the hospital’s coordinates. ]

Yesterday a Russian mobile hospital was hit by shelling literally just days after it was set up to provide assistance to civilians in Aleppo. The attack killed one nurse on the spot and wounded a doctor, and another nurse, as well as a number of civilians receiving treatment. The second nurse later succumbed to her injuries.
Russians have laid the blame for the attack squarely at the feet of the US, Great Britain and France. Russian Minister of Defense in an emotional and direct statement accused the United States of both providing the rebels with the coordinates of the Russian hospital as well as providing the weapons with which it was hit
