MOSCOW, October 22. /TASS/. The Russian Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson on Thursday dismissed some media reports that Russian Aerospace Forces had allegedly hit a hospital in Syria’s Idlib province killing 13 people.
"I’d like to dismiss this information," Maria Zakharova told a news briefing.
The diplomat said the reports are a "smear campaign" carried out with reference to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights based in London.
"As we understand, it is ‘very convenient’ to cover what is going on in Syria from London without coming to the scene and having no possibility to gather information in the field ‘on the ground,’" she said.
She noted that many mass media outlets consider this body as a reliable source of information although over the past days the same amount of information provided by it was dismissed.
