"Last Hospital In Aleppo Destroyed" - Week After Week After Week?

(Updated below)

Doctors in the shattered suburbs of eastern Aleppo appealed for help last night after Syrian government warplanes destroyed the area’s last children’s hospital.

Three weeks after the "last children’s hospital" in east Aleppo was destroyed in a bomb attack, the "last children’s hospital" in Aleppo was destroyed in a bomb attack.

Four new-born babies were killed after a recent triple airstrike hit besieged Aleppo’s last children’s hospital, Middle East Eye can reveal.

A Russian airstrike reportedly knocked out of service the last major hospital in rebel-held northern Aleppo out of commission last week, killing a doctor, a patient and wounding dozens more.

The Andan Charitable Hospital, founded in early 2013, had specialists from all fields on staff, from orthopedic surgeons to dermatologists, ...

Four month after the "last hospital" in Andan (also transliterated as Anadan) was destroyed in a bomb attack, the "last hospital" in Andan was destroyed in a bomb attack.

Anadan Hospital hit by Air Strike in Northern Aleppo at approximately 11pm Damascus time on July 30, 2016. The hospital was the last operating in Western Rural Aleppo. UOSSM supports the Anadan Hospital with medicine and supplies.

Could there be something fishy with all these reports about "hospitals destroyed in Russian air attacks"?


From various sources:

  • The Anadan hospital in the last report was likely indeed damaged, not destroyed, due to an air strike.
  • The hospital was not the target of the damaging airstrike.
  • According to various reports the facility was a "makeshift hospital". It was not a regular medical structure build and known as a hospital. There is no information that it was either marked or registered with the war parties.
  • The strike targeted and killed an al-Qaeda commander from Saudi Arabia as well as other al-Qaeda members. Via SOHR:
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights was informed that unidentified warplanes targeted the area of Kafr Takharim hospital in the northwestern countryside of Idlib, and a Gulf national commander in the front of Fath al-Sham (the organization of al-Qaeda in the Levant previously) was killed, and confirmed information about other casualties in the same targeting, and due to the targeting the hospital got out of work, the hospital, its equipment and devices suffered physical damage.

Few people in Aleppo believe guarantees of safe passage from a government that has for years bombed civilian targets including hospitals, markets and schools, says American-Syrian doctor Zaher Sahloul, who left the city days before it was totally cut off.

“How can you trust a government that is bombing you every day? I am not talking about bombing fighters, I am talking about bombing children and hospitals,” said Sahloul, who has visited Aleppo several times as a volunteer medic over the past four years. “But they are the same people who are saying ‘you can come out safely’.”
How did he leave safely? This is all propaganda, hopefully most people can see right through it. The west and its proxy forces are thrashing about in bewildered impotence.

We're in the middle of a total, multifaceted smear Russia campaign. Where we might see Putin as owning the steadiest hand, joe sixpack in the western street is very much 'ah, I'm not sure about that Putin, unpredictable I cant just take a country by force...and look at the athletes, outrageous, these Russians have been doping for half a century.' Blind. It's not so much Cold War 2.0 as the collapse of the USSR never happened. Layers of bullshit, from initial smear to building an elaborate backstory to suit, until it's the truth.

The only ideological enemies the neo-lib-cons can whip up fear and frenzy against is imaginary boogeymen who can be allies or foes depending on what suits. Stuck in the 20th century. These psycho-capitalists' are a step ahead at the moment I fear, they know they are at the end of the line - I just wonder if the rest of the west can see through the bullshit and get through a global financial reset which should have happened 7-8 years ago without triggering full scale war. Europe just disappoints, so much of what is happening is indirectly adversely affecting it yet no one says a word of what exactly is the cause.

Russia is cleaning house in Syria in correct fashion, in full collaboration with local partners. In time I hope it brings a conclusion to the civil war that is suitable to all Syrians and displays to the world an alternative to what is happening in Iraq, Libya, Ukraine and the countless other states who failed in their fight against democratic capitalisms' covert machinery.

As the collapse of the 'rebels' is nearing, we expect a flurry of 'war crimes', 'massacres', 'hospital bombed', 'Children killed' reported by the desperate media funded by Saudi Arabia, US and Israel.
The trouble is that readers do not care anymore about these news. After been exposed for 5 years to such dramatic events, real or fabricated, indifference is prevailing...
The USA and Saudi Arabia must quickly find something else to taint the imminent victory of the Syrian army, the Hezbollah, Iran and the Russians. Time is running out..

It's amazing really how many hospitals those rebs have. Seems like so many have been destroyed over the years. One wonders how the air force even has time for their other favorite targets, schools, but they've managed to destroy so many of those. Who knew that Daesh was so dedicated to medicine and education. I don't understand though how those evil barrel bombers have failed to target the orphanages. I have yet to hear of any of them being bombed..

I don't find it weird if they did bomb a hospital. I would do the same thing if I was Assad or Putin. The US dropped nuclear bombs and thermal bombs that incinerated entire Japanese cities.

In the ME-region it's also legion to station ammo depots in hospitals and Mosques to protect them or get good propaganda pictures if they are hit.

Even if they did not hit an actual hospital I fully believe opposing forces would lie about the fact.

It seems that Occam's Razor is needed here to answer B's question.

The Western corporate media is a huge believer in sustainability and preserving the environment. One of the principles of sustainability is recycling what you've already used (and reused).

In short: garbage in, garbage out.

This helps to preserve the environment in which the MSM operates (and is stuck).

Paul Craig Roberts makes the same presstitute assertion concerning Russia, as it now appears that NSA and their Israeli subcontractor to AT&T were the real source of the DNC leaks. Yet nobody, nobody, talks about the 2015 theft of $50B by US Congress, with $35B of that to 'backstop the verticals' for the Israeli junta in Kiev's defaulting IMF-loan junkbonds, and the remaining $15B 'backstopping the horizontals' for WB loans to the Israeli junta in Kiev's upgrade of E Ukraine roads and bridges to heavy military load capacity, or the increasing metadiabolic reference to 'Crimea', a drumbeat to war, growing day by day, and ever closer as the price of crude oil slides lower.

@15 rg the lg - thank you. Yes. It takes an actress to address the masses. Probably wasted words, she's not a star anymore, but I love good phrasing and it's enormously good to hear the truth screamed out sometimes against the propaganda:

And there you all are tonight, glued to your TVs and your computers, your hearts swelled with pride because you belong to the strongest country on Earth, cheering on your Murderer President. Ignorant of the entire world’s repulsion. You kill and you kill and you kill, and still you remain proud.

We are fools.

Posted by: Grieved | Aug 1 2016 1:49 utc | 30

The propaganda - it hurts. How about some truth instead? They can lie all they want but the truth on the ground is continuing to proceed at the pace of reality, faster than their narratives can credibly keep up.

I really like the analyst Scott, over at the Saker. I won't give the link because that doesn't work on this blog. But he says this in the first two paragraphs of his latest sitrep today:

In response to the US and Israel shooting down Russian jet and recently shooting down the helicopter, Russia’s long range bombers bombed the US and UK training camps for ISIS terrorists on the border with Jordan. Prior, these camps weren’t targeted by Russia per agreement with the US. Interesting to note that the first time Russia bombed the training camps on June 16th, after that Germany and the US had hysterical fits demanding immediate ceasefire in Syria. In response to their demand, Russia’s bombers went the following day and bombed those training camps again.

Needless to say that by willfully and maliciously shooting down the Russian fighter jet, and the helicopter, the US crossed the redline. After June and July failed anti-government coups in Turkey, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, and Armenia facilitated by the US, all the bets are off. Russia is bombing the western coalition in Syria, outright. As of the end of July all the US, and NATO suspended all the operation in Syria.

People wonder what will happen if the US pushes Russia too much, into nuclear war or something. But Russia updated its war doctrine last year, and everything is laid out clearly. Consequences occur far before it goes nuclear. And even then it only goes nuke in stages. But there is no reverse gear in the Russian position. The fact is that the US is already pushing, and this is the response. The US is throwing itself onto Russian bayonets. And Putin has said out loud and formally (link is in Scott's sitrep) that if any US personnel are killed accidentally in Syria, the fault must lie with the Pentagon.

This is how the ground is moving, in reality. So let us be cheered by this. And if I were wounded in this theater, I would seek out one of Syria's real hospitals, rather than one of the US coalition's fake ones.

This is TOT, but cogent to b's post, ...

So I was walking around in the early AM back streets of my personal 3W mission, in the cool morning air, little street shops and food vendor push carts, and kids in rags waving, 'Hello! Hello! Hello!'. I got a coconut waffle and fruit soda for a few rupiah, and watched butterflies chasing the last dew beside an open flowing sewage canal.

It was a good day to be vertical.

Found this ramshackle warehouse building with corrugated metal fence, so that you couldn't see inside. But my ears recognized the familiar skateboard park sound, and after looking in through the lock-holes, one of the fairly well-dressed young kids let me in.

Thinking what a great mission concept to send photos of this secret skate park to my mission buddy in Kabul, no sooner did I pull out my cammie, than a large white hand covered the lens, and a big White Fellah was asking who are you, and how did you get in, and this was a closed group for NGO and ambassadorial kids only, you have to leave, no observers allowed.

He showed me back to a 3W dirt road crowded with their new Land Rovers, Lexus and Toyota Tundras, sporting NGO and ambassador plates, as poor tuk tuks and push carts made their way slowly around them, in search of alpha.

I headed off walking slowly back in the dust and glare.

Then I truly understood the meaning of Exceptionals, the Elites, the Entitleds of Mil.Gov.Fed, and why there's not a snowflake's chance in hell now of saving the American Republic, or EU member states ordinary working folks, who send 1/3 to 1/2 of their annual income to these Ubers, and their global pogrom of hegemonic gated communities.

Just read a dreadful propaganda piece in the Guardian by Natalie Nougayrede In it she tells of between 200,000 and 300,000 civilians trapped in east Aleppo. In fact the Guardian said last year only 40,000 civilians were in east Aleppo. I have just read many of the comments, virtually every one condemns the article.

As long as Putin plays games(pingpong dimplomacy with Kerry and the rest) with the Syrian war, nothing will change. I'm convinced that nothing short of a Grozny option in places like Idlib, Raqqah and East Aleppo will end the war. These rats don't understand the concept of negtiations and reconcillation.

It is not easy to respond to them in a gentle way. When I do respond, I suppose that I appear to be disconnected or ignorant.

I am not worried about terror events as they are identified and described by the PTB.

I am a bit concerned about the PTB. For example when this slipped out: there weren't any deaths at Club Gay until the Goon Squad showed up.

dahoit@42 "But of course the Israelis have their iron dome" Except it does not work. "During the November 2012 conflict, a detailed review of a large number of photographs of Iron Dome interceptor contrails revealed that the rocket-defense system's success rate was very low—as low as 5 percent or, perhaps, even less". Theodore Postol is Professor of Science and National Security Policy at MIT and expert in ballistic missile defence technology. Hezbollah have over 100,000 missiles, many with GPS guidance systems, thanks to Iran. So maybe the Israelis would be better off spending the 40 billion they are to receive off the US taxpayer over the next 10 years, building a 2 mile high wall.

The escalation of anti-Russian prop (remember Saddam and babies in incubators..) takes place because in many ways it isn’t working (> US, EU.)

The first stab, largely pegged on cultural/identity politics, petty grievances and criticisms of the RF political system (1) is no longer effective as many ppl now DO compare Russia to (e.g.) KSA..

It is now common to state yeah well who knows but what about Saudi Arabia? They are our allies and are ‘far worse’ than Russia? This point is made over and over again by pundits. (Imho that is one reason the US let those 28 pages be published, these pages have zero importance information-wise and will not affect US-KSA relations beyond public bluster, just a mirage for the public, to show that yes we can follow procedures and bash KSA.)

So how is the anti-Russian prop to proceed? Accusations about bombing hospitals are part of the old play-book. Which is increasingly tattered, derided, mocked.

Stab 2, What is left is fact-less demonisation: Putin intends to, may, plans to, etc. / take over the Baltics, imprison gays, hack Killary some more, kill masses of Poles, manipulate the US elections, etc. The hysteria and ridiculous stupidity is front stage and hopefully many do see through it. This approach though is quite effective, as it plugs into back-yard thinking lines. (Joe will divorce Mary as soon as she gives birth … he has it all planned out..but hush..)

"Refuge elsewhere" is an expression of pre-emptive surrender to the NWO. They may seem to be winning but the MSM's job is to play the role of the NWO's rose-tinted spectacles by either deflecting attention from their failures or lying about the blunders which couldn't be covered up. They're only human(?) and they're very cowardly and they make mistakes.

It's not true, as earlier commenters have stated here, that it's impossible to educate the brainwashed. Rome wasn't built in a day and the most reliable way to un-brainwash ppl is to do it a little at a time. It's tempting, when attempting to explain "how it really is" to a member of the brainwashed, to respond to scepticism by adding 'more supporting info' i.e. Too Much.

A better approach is to keep quiet and speak ONLY of an obvious blunder/inconsistency/lie and nothing else. It would be nice to be able to convert gullibles in large quantities, in one shot, but that would be forgetting that the NWO didn't get us to where we are in one shot. Drawing attention to OBVIOUS Blunders, Inconsistencies and Lies will work just as well in neutralising the NWO as those same lies worked for them against us. It won't be quick but one step at a time works for anyone and everyone.
(No offense intended).

And a footnote.
I've always been sceptical of the NWO conspiracy theory. However, the creation of the EU, an unelected supranational body which can be bribed and can over-rule decisions taken by sovereign (bribed) member governments, transforms the NWO from the fringe of Conspiracy Theory to the centre of 'Coincidence' Theory...

@46, noirette, 'Russia represses Artistic Stuff (e.g. Pussy Riot), Religion (latest laws), Sexual Freedom, Gays (remember Sotchi), squashes political opposition, no free democracy, etc.'

Not only do people compare Russia to the KSA, that stuff really relies on the tie-in to the USSR - 'Russia' - and all the sunk prop bucks of that effort. 1991 was a quarter-century ago. There's a whole generation that has not that well of reflexive revulsion built-up over the 40 and more years of 2-minute hates it took to fill it. Have a look at The Russians are Coming (1966) ... that sappy comedy cum cameo Romeo and Juliet, with the ending concocted from a conflation of the 1934 version of The Man Who Knew Too Much and the The Snow Goose, throws Hillary and her Harried bankrupt Harridans into bold, absurd relief. And when their 'spell' fails to take, falls flat in fact, the obvious reasons for its sorry attempted fake will become glaringly obvious.

"A better approach is to keep quiet and speak ONLY of an obvious blunder/inconsistency/lie and nothing else. "

Good idea. I try to do the same sometimes. Other times, I play on their greed. Several years ago I came to work and all I heard was demonization of Iran. It was making me sick to my stomach. I knew I couldn't successfully argue or reason with them. But I knew I could probably shut their mouths. I was emphatic, "DO YOU REALLY WANT A WAR WITH IRAN? Well, be prepared to pay twice as much for gasoline soon after it starts. I DON'T WANT $5-6 A GALLON GASOLINE! DO YOU?"

As I suspected, it worked great. I never heard another word about Iran from them.

It's sickening that large portions of the populace by into the propaganda.

a palace in Iraq - and, more importantly, "According to a report published in early June in the Times, british troops have been frequently (!) crossing into Syria [from Iraq] to support the so-called New Syrian Army (NSA).."

Technically, isn't this invasion actually an act of war? And aren't the french also bombing in Syria? And isn't that also, technically, an act of war? Forgive my ignorance and/or naivety. the double standard seems to have crumbled into no standard at all.

Thank you all in advance, and retrospectively, for thoughtful and thought provoking posts.

Ms. Lacy to you.
