27. Did u ever see the videos of the "hospitals"

 

in Aleppo after it was liberated? how the basements were used as a bomb making factory? these were not just hospitals, they were also legitimate military targets. The point I was trying to make in the 1st link was that hospitals are not 100% immune to attack especially when said facility was used to attack the army, give comfort and support to terrorists invading a nation.

I am a healthcare worker(RN) and if I am ever kidnapped and forced(or voluntarily offer my services) to care for ISIS fighters or some other terrorizing army trying to kill your family, I would understand if the army trying to protect your family dropped a 1000 lb bomb on me. I wouldn't call for it but I would understand if it happened especially if that led to a quicker ending of the war. I also believe an army should try their very best to prevent civilian death and should only attack a civilian area when not attacking would lead to an even greater number of civilian death. In that case, even a hospital used as a staging ground by terrorists can be a legitimate target hence my rationale of how even hospitals can be attacked(same goes for religious facilities)
