Geneva, Switzerland -On Sunday April 28 at 1:30 pm the Al Madiq Hospital in Northern Hama, Syria was hit by an air strike and heavily damaged. There were no injuries or casualties and the facility is now out of service. The hospital, which was supported by UOSSM until the end of March, was one of the few remaining operating hospitals in the region and served as a women and children’s specialty facility. The facility offered maternity services, child services and general surgeries serving approximately 8,000 beneficiaries a month. 5 civilians were also killed in the region during the same wave of airstrikes.
UOSSM denounces attacks on medical facilities, aid workers and civilians. These attacks clearly constitute a war crime and perpetrators must be held accountable by the international community.
