Syrians, Iranians, and Russians are targeting hospitals in Aleppo
August 18, 2016 by Thomas Wictor
Who is destroying Aleppo’s hospitals? Syrians, Iranians, and Russians, of course. But most of the time, they aren’t using aircraft. They simply lack the skill to target a specific building from the air. This is much worse than an aerial bombing campaign. What you’re seeing is Syrians and their allies committing ghastly war crimes.
There’s fragmentation damage in the photos above. Below is an American AGM-114 Hellfire missile hitting an Islamic State vehicle. Note the huge amount of fragmentation—all the puffs in the dirt.
The Hellfire has a warhead that weighs 2kilos). For destroying buildings, the Russians and Syrians use high-explosive fragmentation aerial munitions. The smallest is the OFAB-250. It weighs 550 pounds (250 kilos).
Hence we should be seeing extensive evidence of fragmentation in these attacks on hospitals. Why aren’t we? Because the Syrians, Iranians, and Russians are generally not using aerial munitions.
Syrians are just pawns
Since the Russian OFAB-250 is a “dumb bomb,” it’s unsuitable for precision strikes. Therefore the Syrians, Iranians, and Russians have two different methods of targeting hospitals.
On May 3, 2016, someone attacked the al-Dabeet Maternity Hospital in Aleppo. Below is the video of the aftermath.
The Syrians said that a rebel rocket hit a military fuel truck. Why is there no burning fuel? Because it was a car bomb, not a rocket.
This is the rear axle of the car.
Here’s the front axle of the car, which the explosion threw across the street from the hospital.
There’s no evidence of a military fuel truck.
The Syrians allege that this is the tail fin of the rebel rocket that did the damage.
Below, you can see that the broken edges of the metal (red arrow) are as rusty as the body of the rocket.
Recently broken metal is shiny, not rusty.
The rocket tail fin is an old battlefield relic from a different incident.
Consequently, we know that the Syrians lied. They placed that rocket tail fin in the street after the car bomb detonated.
Syrians should be enraged
A classic sign of a car bomb is when the front of a building peels away. Below is the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City.
The cause is a combination of blast (overpressure) and the destruction of load-bearing support structures.
Photos of the al-Dabeet Maternity Hospital show that the front peeled off and fell into the street.
In addition, there’s no fragmentation damage.
The Iranian Quds Force and the Syrian Military Intelligence Directorate (Shu’bat al-Mukhabarat al-‘Askariyya) use Pentaerythritol tetranitrate (PETN) mixed with a plasticizer. This creates a massively powerful plastic explosive.
Rebels fill their rockets with either ammonium nitrate and fuel oil (ANFO) or explosive harvested from artillery and mortar rounds. They’re nowhere near as destructive as PETN.
A face for Syrians to remember
The attack was an Iranian Quds Force operation. Here’s the commander.
All the other men except for one are uniformed in the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) copy of the American M81 woodland pattern Battle Dress Uniform (BDU). The Quds Force commander is wearing the Iranian copy of the American Desert Camouflage Uniform (DCU) in an urban environment. Why? Because commanders must be visible.
This is another Quds Force member.
The Quds Force is the elite of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). How do I know that the man in the sunglasses is a member of the Quds Force?
Hopefully Syrians helped kill him
Because of Major General Qassem Suleimani, the late head of the Quds Force.
Look what he’s wearing on his finger.
Iranian military officers have a fetish for tacky silver rings with big, round gemstones.
They even wear them in the field.
So it’s pretty much certain that our suave murderer is Iranian.
He isn’t a soldier; he’s a terrorist. It takes no skill whatsoever to kill defenseless civilians.
Another car-bomb attack on a hospital, this one at Daret Ezza, Aleppo Governorate.
The video below allegedly shows an air strike on the hospital at Daret Ezza.
It’s not real. Each rectangle is supposed to be a multistory building.
The filmmakers used small models and a homemade flour bomb or something similar. Look at the edge of the ditch in the background.
Activists are muddying the waters by putting out fake videos. The reality is awful enough. It doesn’t need embellishment.
Syrians should understand this
“Rebel shelling” is a cover for the second method of attacking hospitals.
Rebels did not shell Sheikh Masqoud on April 26, 2016. And the reporter is lying about everything else too. At 0:28, you hear an artillery piece fired. The projectile lands at 0:42, fourteen seconds later. Here it is.
It’s a large munition. The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) uses the 2S4 Tyulpan self-propelled 240mm mortar, the heaviest such weapon in the world.
A fourteen-second flight is proof that the projectile came from far outside Aleppo. Why did the Russian reporter lie about where the munitions hit?
This is Ibn Rashid Cardiac Hospital.
And here is where the Anna film crew was.
The green arrow shows Sheik Masqoud in relation to the Anna film crew.
Therefore this is where the SAA rounds landed (red arrow).
Assad bombarded his own people as camouflage for his attack on the Ibn Rashid Cardiac Hospital. I’ll explain in a moment.
Syrians are massacred
The video below proves how utterly evil Assad, the Iranians, and the Russians are.
All of that is blast damage.
The Syrians are planting explosives inside hospitals. There’s no doubt whatsoever. Watch the left side of the screen.
No fragmentation. The two men standing on the left should have been shredded.
All modern buildings have suspended ceilings to allow room for ducts and light fixtures. The bombs are in the ceilings.
Terrorists disguised as maintenance men and electricians place them there. This is why the Arab League can’t stop the targeting of hospitals. The terrorists must be intercepted before they plant their bombs. That’s incredibly difficult.
Syrians have suffered enough
Back to the Russian video.
There’s no way that an unguided projectile just happened to hit the Ibn Rashid Cardiac Hospital. It was an explosive device planted inside the building.
The explosive was in the stairwell. All the damage is on the side of the hospital facing the camera. The rebels were allegedly firing from the far side of the building. Therefore it’s not possible that a rebel projectile caused that damage.
Assad and his allies fire large projectiles at Aleppo. In the middle of this bombardment, they set off explosives that operatives placed inside the target earlier. People mistake the artillery, car bombs, and hidden explosives for air strikes.
So, now you know who’s targeting Aleppo’s hospitals. Let’s pray that somebody sends the murderers to hell, where they belong.
