    A journalist from RT Arabic, Somar Abudiyab, was injured in the shelling of a  Russian military mobile hospital in Syria's Aleppo. "Abudiyab as member of the Russian pool was filming the consequences of the hospital shelling when fire resumed. He was slightly injured in the leg, no other journalists were injured," the statement on the RT website said.

    Earlier it was reported, that the militants of the so-called Syrian opposition attacked a Russian military mobile hospital in Syria's Aleppo, killing a military medic member of staff and injuring two others.

    "Today … during an appointment of local residents, the medical camp of the defense ministry’s mobile hospital was shelled by militants. One military medic was killed as a result of a mine hitting the hospital’s emergency room. Two other medical employees were seriously injured. Local civilians who arrived to visit the doctors were also wounded," Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said Monday.

    According to Konashenkov, militants of the Syrian "opposition" are behind the attack.

    Moreover, Moscow understands where militants of the Syrian "opposition" received coordinates of the Russian hospital in Aleppo, he added.
