Most Qualified Pediatrician’ Killed in Airstrike on Aleppo Hospital

Doctor Muhammad Waseem Maaz working at Aleppo’s pediatric hospital.

He was one of the last remaining pediatricians in the city

One of the last pediatricians in the Syrian city of Aleppo was killed in an air strike Thursday.

Dr. Muhammad Waseem Moaz, 36, was one of more than 50 people killed in the strike on Al Quds hospital, run by Medecins Sans Frontieres in the rebel-held city where experts warn the number of doctors is already limited, the BBC reported.

“Dr. Maaz was martyred due to what staff on the ground believe to be an airstrike perpetrated by the regime or its allies on Al Quds Hospital,” Dr. Mahmoud Mustafa in Gaziantep, director of the Independent Doctors Association,wrote in a statement. “The warplane directly targeted medical facilities, staff and civilians in the area in addition to patients in and outside the hospital.”

In a Facebook post, the director of a separate children’s hospital in Aleppo called Moaz “the city’s most qualified paediatrician.”

“He used to work at our Children’s Hospital during the day and then he’d go to Al Quds Hospital to attend to emergencies overnight,” the director, identified only as Dr. Hatem, wrote. “He was friendly, kind and he used to joke a lot with the whole staff. He was the loveliest doctor in our hospital.”

The Syrian military has denied it targeted the hospital, but locals have blamed the attack on Syrian or Russian planes, the BBC reported.

Russian Warplane Flies in ‘Unsafe’ Manner Near U.S. Aircraft

The Russian plane “performed erratic and aggressive maneuvers,” the U.S. said

A Russian Su-27 jet flew dangerously close to a U.S. Air Force RC-135 aircraft over the Baltic Sea on Friday, military officials said.

The Russian plane flew within 25 feet of the RC-135’s fuselage, conducting a barrel roll over the U.S. plane.

Lt. Col Michelle Baldanza, a Defense Department Spokesperson said that, “on April 29, 2016, a U.S. Air Force RC-135 aircraft flying a routine route in international airspace over the Baltic Sea was intercepted by a Russian SU-27 in an unsafe and unprofessional manner.”

She added that the Russian plane “performed erratic and aggressive maneuvers” and that “the SU-27 intercepted the U.S. . . .

Baghdad Truck Bombing Kills 21

image

Civilians inspect the scene of car bombing at an open-air market selling fruit, vegetables and meat in Baghdad’s southeast suburb of Nahrawan, Iraq, on April 30, 2016.

ISIS claimed responsibility

(BAGHDAD) — The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for a bombing Saturday east of Baghdad, according to a statement posted on an IS-affiliated website. The attack killed at least 21 people and wounded at least 42 others, according to Iraqi police and hospital officials. The IS statement described the attack as a three-ton truck bombing.

The attack targeted Shiite civilians shopping in an open-air market selling fruit, vegetables and meat in Nahrawan, according to Iraq’s Interior Ministry. The IS statement and initial reports from local officials at the scene claimed the bombing targeted Shiite pilgrims walking to Baghdad’s holy Kadhimiyah shrine.

“It was not a road for people walking toward Kadhimiyah,” said Brig. Gen. Saad Mann, a spokesman for the Interior Ministry and Baghdad Operations Command.

The attack’s casualty figures were confirmed by police and hospital officials who spoke on condition of anonymity as they were not authorized to speak to the press.

Thousands of Shiite pilgrims from across Iraq are expected to travel on foot to the shrine of 8th-century Imam Moussa al-Kadhim over the coming days to commemorate the anniversary of his death. Security in the capital has been tightened in anticipation of the crowds; additional checkpoints have been set up and roads have been closed.

The Islamic State group regularly carries out attacks targeting Iraq’s Shiite majority, including attacks on Shiite pilgrims and civilians in Baghdad’s Shiite neighborhoods. IS views Shiites as apostates deserving of death.

Mann said the attack in Baghdad was carried out by IS in response to recent territorial losses in Iraq. “The only strategic weapon left for them are (suicide bombers),” Mann said. While IS still controls large swaths of Iraq’swest and north, the group has suffered a series of territorial losses over the past year. Most recently IS fighters were pushed out of the western town of Hit.

In the face of those losses, analysts and Iraqi security officials say the extremist group is increasingly turning to insurgent-style attacks in Baghdad and other areas far from the frontline fighting.

More than 40 civilians have been killed in high-profile bombings in Baghdad over the past month. On March 25th an IS-claimed suicide bombing attack on a stadium killed 29 and wounded 60.

Saturday’s attack also comes amid a political crisis in Iraq as the country’s Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi is under increasing public pressure after repeated failed attempts at political reform to combat corruption and waste.
