Advanced missiles wreck Syrian rebels’ underground hospital

An estimated five advanced missiles dropped from the air Thursday night wrecked a rebel hospital built under 20m of rock in the Hama province. The hospital, one of the best protected in the country, served a population of 50,000. No deaths were reported since the staff and patients were evacuated to a safe room when they heard enemy jets overhead. But the hospital was put out of commission.

    Highest probability of Syrian jets (of Russian origin?) armed with Russian missiles. For the most part, the US and Israel support the rebel Syrians. Turkey would likely not violate Syrian airspace and certainly not launch missiles at the civilian target unless it was packed with Kurds (it wasn’t). Assad would not hesitate to wreck carnage against his people if approved by Putin given that he has done so, many times in the past. Peace.

    Putin with dangerous ambitions intent on crushing any seed of potential rebellion; Looks as if he means to conquer the Middle East through Iran. That threat is too dangerous to ignore

    When hearing enemy jets overhead does not give sufficient time to evacuate patients and staff so that there are no casualties when the facility is bombed unless the numbers of people present in the facility is very low. Calling such a facility a hospital may be a bit of an exaggeration.

    Maybe a hospital like a Hamas hospital; one that doubles as a command center.

    If they can destroy a hospital 20m under rock so why the hell there is a requirement to build a safe room into the house.
    Imagine one lives near the border to syria or lebanon, one could also say, “I build light construction only”, because if there is a hit and we survive (have been at school, work etc),
    it is easier to rebuild the house. If they would have a safe room required by the building law, not a real bunker, they would be dead if hit by such a bomb. So what is the difference between beeing killed in a wooden house or in a concrete house that comprises a “safe room” made of even bigger concrete and steel?
    It would be a valid thought just to build a wooden house and have a sefer tora with an aron-ha-kodesh in the living room.

    Most likely an hospital cum arm depot. Similar to mosque cum arms depot or children’s school cum arms depot . Muslim traditions. When bombed they cry foul.

    if this story is accurate, and Russia has given missiles to Assad, that will penetrate 100 feet of rock, Iran has already received the same weapons from the Russians. Israel has to re-think many of its shelters and military shelters. It may be necessary to build civilian shelters deeper and to use re-inforced concrete (like the Iranians do) to protect military and critical civilian facilities. The North Korean subway system is Pyongyang is 360 feet underground.
