Turkish air strike on hospital in Syria’s Afrin
A Turkish bombing raid struck the main hospital in the Kurdish-controlled Syrian town of Afrin on Friday killing nine people, a monitor said, as Ankara pressed its nearly two-month assault.

"There are at least nine dead. We don't know if there are medical staff among them," said the [so-called] "Syrian Observatory for Human Rights" war monitor.

Earlier on Friday, 18 civilians, including five children, were killed in Turkish artillery shelling of the northern Syrian city of Afrin, the [so-called] "Syrian Observatory for Human Rights"  and spokesman for the Kurdish People's Protection Unit reported.

The observatory announced that at least 2,500 people fled overnight from the city of Afrin in buses and cars to the villages of Nabal and Zahra.

    El Ejército turco había anunciado este martes que Afrín —ciudad situada en el norte de Siria, a unos 20 kilómetros de la frontera con Turquía— había sido rodeada por completo con ayuda de los rebeldes sirios aliados. Esa zona es controlada por la milicia kurda y ha sido el objetivo clave de la operación transfronteriza Rama de Olivo, llevada a cabo por Ankara.

  3. Un raid turc contre un hôpital à Afrine a fait de multiples morts et blessés, a déclaré à Sputnik un employé de l'hôpital. Pourtant, l'état-major turc a démenti toute information à ce propos.
    L'état-major turc a rejeté les informations sur une récente frappe de ses forces aériennes contre un hôpital, situé dans la ville syrienne d'Afrine, qui avait fait de nombreuses victimes, comme l'a appris Sputnik d'une source au sein du personnel.

    «Au moins 11 personnes ont été tuées et des dizaines d'autres ont reçu des blessures dans le raid turc contre un hôpital à Afrine. La frappe a infligé des dégâts considérables au bâtiment», a affirmé un de ses employés.

    1. Οι τουρκικές ένοπλες δυνάμεις διέψευσαν σήμερα ότι η τουρκική πολεμική αεροπορία έπληξε το κεντρικό νοσοκομείο της κουρδικής πόλης Αφρίν στη βορειοδυτική Συρία, με αποτέλεσμα να σκοτωθούν 16 άμαχοι, όπως υποστήριξαν χθες το Συριακό Παρατηρητήριο Ανθρωπίνων Δικαιωμάτων και η πολιτοφυλακή YPG των Κούρδων της Συρίας.
      «Αναφορές ότι ο τουρκικός στρατός βομβάρδισε ένα νοσοκομείο στην Αφρίν είναι ψευδείς. Η επιχείρηση Κλάδος Ελαίας διεξάγεται με ένα τρόπο που αποκλείει πλήγματα σε αμάχους», σημείωσαν οι τουρκικές ένοπλες δυνάμεις με ανάρτησή τους στο Τwitter.
      Η Ερυθρά Ημισέληνος, μέλη της οποίας εργάζονται στο νοσοκομείο, επιβεβαίωσε στο Γαλλικό Πρακτορείο την αεροπορική επιδρομή.
