SYRIA | Forensic Architecture investigate the bombings of hospitals in Ma'arat Al Numan
Description: Following the bombing of an MSF-supported hospital in Maarat in February 2016, MSF asked Forensic architecture to investigate the attack. While the Forensic Architecture video does not determine whether it was the Russian or the Syrian forces who bombed, it brings enough converging elements to confront the blunt denial that Russian and Syrian opposed us after the bombings. Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international, independent, medical humanitarian organisation that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural disasters and exclusion from healthcare.
