Maryam Rajavi: Attack on Aleppo hospital is a “war crime”

The President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, has called the bombing of a hospital in Aleppo last week by Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad’s forces a “war crime”.

The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), reports that Mrs. Rajavi “strongly condemned” the deadly strike that happened last Wednesday. Dozens of people were killed including children and doctors.

Mrs. Rajavi reminded that the Iranian regime is backing Assad’s forces under the orders of Ali Khamenei, the mullahs’ Supreme Leader.

As a result of the attack on the Al Quds Hospital in Aleppo, at least 27 patients and hospital staff were killed, despite the hospital being in a well-known location and despite the fact that the hospital was affiliated with the ‘Doctors Without Borders’ charity.

The NCRI have indicated that an online campaign with the aim of stopping the bloodshed in Aleppo has “picked up speed” following the attack. Twitter users are posting pictures of destroyed buildings on fire using the hashtag #AleppoIsBurning.
