Several Civilians Killed, Wounded in Terrorists’ Attacks on Hama Hospital

TEHRAN (FNA)- Over a dozen civilians were killed and wounded in terrorists’ rocket attacks from the demilitarized zone on a hospital in Hama, media reports said.

The terrorists stationed in the demilitarized zone in Northern Hama pounded Masiyaf National Hospital in Western Hama with several rockets on Sunday morning, the Arabic-language SANA news agency reported.

It noted several rockets hit the hospital’s entrance, while others hit the pediatrics ward of the hospital.

Four civilians, including two medical staff, were killed and 14 others were also wounded in the rocket attacks.

The terrorist groups continue to defy calls for leaving the demilitarized zone in Northern Syria after lapse of six months since the Sochi Agreement, and have rather increased their attacks on safe areas and military points on a daily basis.

In a relevant development on Saturday, the Syrian Army pounded and destroyed the terrorists’ movements and positions in Northern Hama in response to their continued attacks from the demilitarized zone on safe areas and military points there.

The Syrian Army’s artillery and missile units hit the military positions of Tahrir al-Sham al-Hay’at (the Levant Liberation Board or the Al-Nusra Front) in the city of al-Ankavi and the town of al-Hawiz in Northern Hama, destroying a number of their hideouts and concentration centers as well as killing several militants.

The Syrian Army’s artillery units also pounded the terrorists’ movements in the towns of Shehr Naz in Shahshabou Mountains, the surrounding areas of al-Maziq Castle, al-Sohriyeh and al-Hawija in Western Hama, killing and wounding a large number of them as well as destroying their military equipment.
