Russian nurse killed in Syria

Russian contingent in Aleppo suffered one more casualty, this time their medical personnel this time

A Russian female nurse has been killed during the rebel shelling in the Syrian city of Aleppo, the Associated Press reports, referring to an unnamed Russian officer. 

 

Two Russian doctors were also wounded after rebel fighters reportedly shelled a makeshift hospital in the government-held part of Aleppo, the agency's sources told on the condition of anonymity due to regulations on Monday. 

Moscow had sent in aid into the Furqan neighbourhood in the government-held part of the city a day earlier, including equipment to set up the field hospital, the reports also says.

Meanwhile, Russia's defence ministry has confirmed the death of a female nurse in Syria. Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for Kremlin, gave no comments upon the reports, referring to the lack of information. 

Also, the Russian military spokesman Igor Konashenkov said that it was the Aleppo terrorists and their patrons in the USA, Great Britain and France who was holding responsibility for the nurse's death. 

"The blood of our servicemen is on the murder contactor's hands as well. On those hands that have created, nurtured and armed those beasts in human likeness, calling them an opposition, in order to justify themselves for their consciousness and voters. Yes, sirs, the terrorists' patrons from the USA, Great Britain, France and other countries and formations loyal to them," the Russia's top military spokesman claimed.
