Geneva, Switzerland - A second hospital was attacked in Idlib, Syria yesterday. Al Rawda Hospital in Kafranbel, Idlib was bombed in a targeted attack on November 26, at approximately 7:39 p.m. Damascus time. The hospital was damaged and put out of service. No casualties were reported since the hospital was evacuated earlier.

UOSSM denounces the continued attacks on medical facilities and staff in the strongest possible terms. Perpetrators must be held accountable for these deliberate war crimes. Dr. Khaula Sawah, Vice President of UOSSM USA said, " Two hospitals have been attacked in Idlib, leaving tens of thousands vulnerable, with limited access to medical care. It is outrageous that the world continues to turn a blind eye to the atrocities. These war crimes must be stopped and perpetrators must be held accountable."
