Hama - SMART

On Sunday, suspected Russian airstrikes destroyed the hospital of the city of al-Lataminah in Northern Hama, Central Syria.

A local source reported that suspected Russian warplanes bombed the hospital several times, destroying it. The source added that they cannot estimate the financial loss caused by the Russian violent bombings on the area.

The source added that the hospital used to offer medical care to thousands of families and patients, but because of previous bombings and displacement, the care only reaches 700 families from al-Lataminah and surrounding villages.

The source noted that suspected Russian warplanes and Syrian government forces' helicopters bombed al-Lataminah 30 times, displacing the residents and causing significant destruction.

The Syrian government forces and Russia continue to bomb the Hama countryside, which is outside Syrian government control, killing and injuring civilians, and suspending school. The local council of the city of Kafr Zayta announced the devastation of the city due to bombings and its residents' displacement.
