Russia Accuses US in Attack on Field Hospital, Death of Its Medical Staff

[ 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. ]

    It’s highly likely that the field hospital was hit by a couple of missiles flown by an ‘over the horizon’ drone; Probably from Israel. They have ‘form’ in this kind of false flag warfare.

    • You may be right. There are probably “advisers,” maybe Israelis, among the terrorists, though. Whatever the case, I doubt it was just a “lucky” hit.
