    UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said on Sunday that attacks on Syrian hospitals were war crimes, impeding the continuation of peace talks on settlement of Syrian conflict, local media reported.

    LONDON (Sputnik) – Bombing of the Syrian city of Aleppo on Tuesday night damaged two Doctors Without Borders (MSF) backed hospitals, killed 2 patients and injured two medical staff.

    "It is the continuing savagery of the Assad regime against the people of Aleppo…the complicity of the Russians in committing what are patently war crimes — bombing hospitals, when they know they are hospitals and nothing but hospitals that is making it impossible for peace negotiations to resume," Boris Johnson said at the Conservative party conference, as quoted by the Guardian newspaper.
