Sky News has seen documents which suggest the deliberate targeting of hospitals in Syria – which can be used as evidence of an international war crime – as regime troops close in on Idlib.
There were more attacks on civilians shopping in the centre of the Idlib suburb of Saraqib on Wednesday – another violation of human rights.
Both sides in the fighting in Syria have been accused of violating international law.
The collapse of the latest ceasefire has prompted tens of thousands of civilians to flee the attacks in Idlib and head towards the Turkish border.
Turkey’s president has warned about an impending “humanitarian tragedy”.
The Sky News team visited the site of Rahmah Hospital in the Idlib area of Talmanes, which was hit four times by warplanes allied to the Syrian government about a week ago.
Inside, the shelves and cupboards were still stocked with medicines and medical equipment.
We collected documents clearly identifying that patients had been treated in the hospital on the day of the bombing.
The regime has often claimed health facilities are being used by opposition fighters as army bases from where they mount attacks.
There’s been a sharp escalation in the violence between the two sides with intense fighting over the past fortnight.
Regime troops backed by Russia and Iran have been making dramatic advances by systematically bombing and shelling areas in the enclave near the Turkish border – forcing civilians to move out of the way of the advancing fighters.
The territory has become a haven for extremist rebels, and a multitude of different fighting groups, but also millions of civilians who have fled their homes in other areas that government forces have retaken.
There are few international aid groups working in the area because of the relentless airstrikes and shelling with the regime forces repeatedly attacking health facilities.
Many of the victims are children. And even those who survive can suffer life-changing injuries or are overwhelmed with the horrors they’ve seen.
We saw five-year-old Amal, who’d witnessed her mother, father and brother all killed in front of her, unable or unwilling to speak to the medics, cousins and family friends now trying to care for her.
“She is utterly traumatised,” one doctor told Sky News. “We see this a lot. Syria is going to suffer for a long time.”
