UN demanded answers from Russia about bombing hospitals in Idlib

The United Nations announced that it had requested clarifications from Russia on how to use it for data on the locations of clinics and hospitals targeted in Idlib, north-west of Syria.

UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Marc Lokoc told the Security Council that he asked Russia for information on how to use the details provided to them through the dispute resolution mechanism.

Lokoc told the UN Security Council that he was not sure that hospitals sharing location coordinates within a UN conflict resolution system would be protected.

The United Nations earlier announced that more than 23 hospitals have been targeted since the escalation of military action in the area of De-escalation in Syria in late April, while Russia denies having ever targeted the hospitals in the region.
