Washington, DC - The United States is concerned by reports of airstrikes in Idlib province and northern Hama province on September 19 and 20 that killed at least three medical personnel and damaged a number of medical facilities, emergency equipment, and civil defense centers.

These attacks fit an all-too-familiar pattern in which medical facilities and personnel – and the civilians they serve – are victims of strikes by the Syrian regime and its Russian allies.

There is no military solution to this conflict. We reiterate our call for de-escalation and a political settlement through an inclusive process, owned and led by the Syrian people, as called for in UN Security Council resolution 2254 and the Geneva Communique.
