Syrian forces kill several civilians when a hospital west of Aleppo was shelled

At least six civilians were killed and several medics injured when a hospital west of Aleppo was shelled by Syrian forces on Sunday, medics and rescuers have said

Turkey, which has a military presence in the area, earlier announced that there had been an artillery attack by Damascus-backed forces on a hospital in the area.

A ceasefire agreed by Russia and Turkey a year ago was supposed to protect the area, ending a Russian bombing campaign in support of the Syrian government that displaced more than a million people in Idlib.
