The invading Turkish army issued a statement on their Twitter account regarding the bombing of the Avrin Hospital and claimed the “allegations that a hospital has been bombed are outside the realm of reality”, while the footage they published says otherwise.
The invading Turkish army bombed the Avrin Hospital in Afrin last night at 21.00 local time. 3 barrel bombs deployed from fighter jets hit the hospital and at least 15 civilians lost their lives.
The attack against the hospital where civilians wounded in the attacks by the invading Turkish army and ISIS-Al Qaeda gangs that have continued for the last 57 days has been confirmed by the international news agency AFP and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).
Following increasing reactions against the Turkish state after international press reported breaking news of the attack, the Turkish army issued a statement over their Twitter account and published a video. The TAF statement claims “the allegations that a hospital has been bombed are outside the realm of reality”, while the footage they published says otherwise.
The area marked as the hospital building in the TAF footage is a printing house in Afrin.
Located right next to the printing house is the Avrin Hospital – marked with an arrow in the image. The footage clearly shows the hospital has been bombed.
