Russia Denies Ankara's Claims of Ballistic Missile Strike on Hospital

Russian Defense Ministry Denies Ankara's Allegation that it has Bombed a Hospital in Idlib, Syria

In the Russian Caspian flotilla, there are no ships with the ability to launch a missile strike on a hospital in the Syrian province of Idlib, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov told reporters.

"While visiting Ukraine, Turkish PM Ahmet Dacutoglu accused Russia of striking a hospital in Idlib with a ballistic missile from the Caspian Sea. But we have no any ships in the Casian flotilla which are able to launch such strikes," Konashenkov said.

It seems Turkey has launched an information campaign against Russia, the spokesman added.

On Monday, the Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said that a hospital in the northwestern Syrian city of Maarat Numan, in the Idlib province, was hit by four rockets. It did not say which of the warring parties was suspected to be behind the deadly attack claiming the lives of at least seven people.
