Russia and the Syrian government should be investigated for war crimes, US Secretary of State John Kerry said.
“Russia, and the regime, owes the world more than an explanation about why they keep hitting hospitals and medical facilities and children,” he said.
“These are acts that beg for an appropriate investigation of war crimes.”
Moscow has repeatedly denied attacking civilians, and said it targets terrorist groups in Syria.
Mr Kerry, however, said Russian and Syrian government attacks on hospitals were “beyond the accidental” and part of a deliberate strategy in war-torn Syria.
“This is a targeted strategy to terrorize civilians and to kill anybody and everybody who is in the way of their military objectives,” he said.
