Part of why the UN passed the resolution requiring pursuit of justice in such cases in recent days--after the US investigation failed to provide more than " a few people disobeyed orders-oh well." Thanks Judy

Read the article---an ongoing nightmare, awake and sleeping--and even injured in a hospital bed or being on medical staff--shot ---and no solid plans of protecting hospitals. All sorts of obscene atrocities and outlooks involved in this problem. Thanks for very ugly, frightening, surreal truth, Judy. Excellent reporting!!

The MSF president Joanne Liu said:

“We are at a deadly impasse. We can no longer assume that fully functioning hospitals — in which patients are fighting for their lives — are out of bounds. Hospitals and patients have been dragged onto the battlefield.”

Liu scolded the U.N. Security Council, accusing it of hypocrisy. “You are charged with protecting peace and security,” she said. “Yet four of the five permanent members of this council have, to varying degrees, been associated with coalitions responsible for attacks on health structures over the last year.”

“I repeat: Stop these attacks.”

I say if these attacks are not terrorism, I don't know what is.
