Ukraine Shelling Hits Hospital In Rebel-Held Donetsk

Heavy shelling in the rebel stronghold of Donetsk in eastern Ukraine on Wednesday afternoon killed at least five people and damaged a hospital, six schools and five kindergartens, local officials said.

The fighting between Russia-backed separatists and government troops in eastern Ukraine resumed in January after a month of relative calm, killing more than 200 people in the past three weeks, according to the United Nations.

The city hall in Donetsk said the number of casualties from Wednesday's shelling in the west part of Donetsk early afternoon was not immediately established but the rebel-run Donetsk News Agency reported five killed inside and near the hospital in Tekstilshchik district.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I believe that the shelling of hospitals (as well as the shelling of residential complexes) qualifies as war crimes; looks as though Ukrainian military commanders are taking a page from the IDF playbook

After all, the IDF bombs Palestinian hospitals and schools with impunity.
