Following the attack, Russian authorities said that Syrian rebels "had exact coordinates" of the hospital that means that those parties who support militants were also responsible for the deaths of Russian doctors. However, the US State Department denied giving coordinates of the Russian mobile hospital to the Syrian opposition.
"France condemns the attack that took place on December 5, and the object of which was a hospital in the western part of Aleppo, which caused the death of several civilians and two medics. These attacks are a new serious violation of international law," Nadal told a press briefing.
He added that France was calling on all the parties to ensure the protection of medical workers and healthcare facilities in Syria, which is the requirement of the UN Security Council Resolution 2286.
