Russia Adopts Israeli Tactics -- bombs Brotherhood command bunker under hospital
Brotherhood is pretty much the same in Syria as in Egypt plus its HAMAS offshoot. Their tactics in Syria borrow what they can from the HAMAS Gaza experience.
According to official IDF sources HAMAS uses hospitals and schools repeatedly to store war materials and set up their command centers. One example was the Al-Wafa rehabilitation hospital that IDF took out in July, 2014. Brotherhood/HAMAS tactics set things up.
...the medical facility was being used as a Hamas command center and utilized repeatedly by Islamist gunmen to launch attacks on Israeli forces. It said it had issued repeated warnings to the hospital authorities, told civilians to vacate the premises, and warned the gunmen to stop abusing the medical facility.
It later issued a video showing gunfire from the premises, and featuring a recording of phone calls from the IDF to the hospital in which the IDF was assured that the hospital was locked and there were no patients inside. The clip also showed a Hamas tunnel opening adjacent to the hospital.
“Hamas terrorists have been intentionally abusing the hospital and other international protected symbols to indiscriminately attack Israel and its civilians,” said IDF spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner.
Same thing happened at Shifa Hospital in Gaza City.
William Booth of the Washington Post wrote that the hospital “has become a de facto headquarters for Hamas leaders, who can be seen in the hallways and offices.” Back in 2006, PBS even aired a documentary showing how gunmen roam the halls of the hospital, intimidate the staff, and deny them access to protected locations within the building—where the camera crew was obviously prohibited from filming. Yet the confirmation that Hamas is using Gaza City’s biggest hospital as its de facto headquarters was made in the last sentence of the eighth paragraph of Booth’s story....
Journalists who report use of hospitals for military purposes are routinely threatened.
Now Russia uses advanced electronics and drone imaging to identify "Rebel" / Brotherhood assets. Busting up these assets is the only way to end the war. Estimates on the ground go to a 3- to 6-month time horizon for stamping out the "Rebel" / Brotherhood armed force at Aleppo. After 5 years of broad civilian casualties and such as the recent "Rebel" attack on Syrian Red Crescent trucks, seeing the Syrian government and allies win out in western and central Syria is an improvement.
Of course when Israel does this kind of response, no problem. Russia does it and it's the worst war crime since Pol Pot ran Cambodia.
