Petition: Publish the identity of aircraft used to bomb hospitals in Syria
Petition to the UK Government: Publish the identity of aircraft used to bomb hospitals in Syria
On 29 July, unidentified aircraft bombed a maternity hospital in Syria supported by Save the Children.
As part of the Coalition against Daesh, the UK has data on military aircraft flights in Syria. Where data can identify aircraft used to bomb hospitals, the UK should publish their identity.
UK residents and citizens please sign here.
Physicians for Human Rights have documented 373 attacks on medical facilities in Syria.
Deliberate attacks on hospitals are a war crime. Those responsible should not be allowed any measure of deniability.
Background from Amnesty: Fatal airstrike on maternity hospital a potential war crime
