Russia's Defense Ministry spokesman Major-General Igor Konashenkov said on Monday, Censor.NET reports citing TASS.
"Today, from 12:21 p.m. to 12:30 p.m. Moscow time, the medical center of the Defense Ministry's mobile hospital was subjected to the militants' artillery fire while receiving local residents. As a mine directly hit the hospital's reception department, one Russian female medic was killed. Two other medics were heavily wounded. Local residents who had come to visit the doctors were also hurt," he said.
"No doubt, the opposition's gunmen carried out the shelling. We understand where the militants got the precise data and coordinates of the reception of the Russian hospital at the moment when it began working," Konashenkov added.
According to him, the responsibility for the murdered and wounded Russian medics rests not only with the Syrian opposition.
"The instigators are also to blame, those who created and armed these beasts in human form and called them "opposition" in order to unburden themselves. Yes, the sponsors of terrorists in the U.S., U.K. and France, as well as other countries sympathizing with them, you are to blame," the general said.
