MSF Admits Withholding Syria Hospital Coordinates from Damascus, Moscow

Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) admitted it did not provide GPS coordinates of health facilities it supports in Syria to either Damascus or Moscow, few days after one of its hospitals was destroyed.

“We gave to the Russian ambassadors in Paris [and] in Geneva coordinates for three hospitals located in very intense conflict zones, but not for all of them, and it was a decision taken together with the medical staff of the health facilities that we support,” said MSF operations director Isabelle Defourny.msf

Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said at least 11 people were killed after the hospital in Idlib province was destroyed on Monday morning.

According to MSF, the coordinates had not been shared with the authorities or relevant Russian representatives because of safety concerns that were voiced by doctors operating in Syria.

“The staff of the hospital [and] the director of the hospital didn't know if they would be better protected if they give the GPS or not,” Defourny said.

Syria's UN envoy Bashar Jaafari accused the medical aid charity MSF of being a front for French intelligence in Syria, stressing that the NGO did not operate with the Syrian government permission.

"The so-called hospital was installed without any prior consultation with the Syrian government by the so-called French network called MSF which is a branch of the French intelligence operating in Syria," Jaafari told UN Security Council.
