Bombing allegations

ISTANBUL – The Turkish military denied on Saturday that it had struck a hospital in Syria’s Afrin region, where it is waging a nearly two-month-old offensive against Kurdish YPG forces.

The YPG and Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitor said a Turkish air strike hit Afrin town’s main hospital on Friday night, killing 16 people.

“Reports that Turkish armed forces bombed a hospital in Afrin are false,” the military said on Twitter, adding that it was carrying out the campaign in a way that would not hurt civilians.
