Russia Bombed Four Syrian Hospitals. We Have Proof.


The New York Times

Russia Bombed Four Syrian Hospitals. We Have Proof. is the culmination of a months-long investigation into the bombings of hospitals in Syria, and was the first report that publicly and definitively proved that Russia was responsible for these potential war crimes. The team from The New York Times traced four bombings in a 12-hour period, using visual and audio evidence to verify facts and prove Russia’s culpability in the strikes. The result is a skillful combination of advanced digital forensics and visual reporting, which has received recognition from the United Nations Security Council and human rights groups around the world.
