Russia has long been suspected of bombing civilian hospitals and clinics in Syria, but proving it has been near impossible. Russia and the Assad government denied it. And not even reports by the United Nations and other investigators could pinpoint responsibility. But last October The New York Times Visual Investigations team proved that Russian pilots bombed four hospitals in Syria last May, violating one of the oldest rules of war.

One of those hospitals was hit again in November and our team once again proved Russia responsible. And in a third investigation we showed that Russian pilots hit a busy commercial street in a densely populated city and a camp for displaced families —two of the bloodiest attacks in Syria last year.
