Qatar closes its bombed health center in Syria


Qatar says it has closed a health center it was running in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo after the facility was struck by bombs over the weekend.

The Qatar Red Crescent says four bombs were dropped from a helicopter on the hospital in the rebel-held neighborhood of Sakhour on Sayurday.

QRS said on Monday that the attack killed two patients, wounded eight and destroyed half the center. Initially, the Qataris had reopened the facility, which was originally built by the Syrian Arab Red Crescent, in April.

Dr. Hashem Darwish, the head of the health program at the QRCS’s mission in Turkey, called the attack a war crime.

The QRC statement came two days after doctors and activists said bombing had put the hospital known as M10 out of service.
