Too many people in Syria think it is OK to attack hospitals. It is not.

Interesting, USA funding in terrorist area.

No. This is the Russians and Iranian backed Shiite militias with Syrian Army support trying to disarm the YPG and simultaneously remove the Turks from northern Syria. Turkey is trying to blame the attacks on the YPG but they do not have anything with the range to conduct these strikes and certainly do not have long range artillery. The best they have are anti-tank rockets with a range of 2500-3000 meters, not the 25,000 or more meters of these attacks. Get to know the players in this region, who is fighting who and why. It is a complex mess but these attacks are Russian and Iranian backed aimed at driving out Turkish Army forces in northern Syria.

...and they are right. The Turks and YPG are there illegally, the Russians are there based on invitation of the government. As for the Hizbollah, I have no sympathy for them, but alas Iran is the only ally Syria has in the region, seeing that neither the Sunni Arabs nor Israel are sympathetic to the secular Syrian Alevite government.

The article sounds very much like the renewed "regime change" warmongering that we were expecting from the Western swamp governments.

No. It is Turkey trying to blame the YPG to justify their ongoing genocide of the Kurds and also trying to avoid confronting the Russian Army directly. The Turks have aircraft overhead and know darn well who is shooting at their ground forces. YPG has nothing with anything close to the range necessary for these attacks. It is Russian artillery and Iranian and Russian missiles they are being hit with. You won't find any western nations supporting the Turks in Syria. None. The Turks have made a bad situation much worse. The Turks and Russians both want YPG disarmed and out of the way but the Turks do not want to yield ground to the Russian and Iranian forces. The Turks want a buffer along their border with Syria. I don't think anybody but the Turks believe this will end well for Turkey.

This is a clear war crime.

Every side has been given the coordinates, in order to avoid hitting hospitals like this, but one side has repeatedly used this very information in order to deliberately strike terror and panic into the local people and force them to move.

Quote “This was a condemned terrorist act that targeted civilians," said Adnan...

And so it was.
