Daily Telegraph: Targeting of hospitals in Syria is ‘unparalleled brutality,’ Penny Mordaunt says
“…Penny Mordaunt, the international development secretary, has launched an £11 million fund to try and find innovative ways to deliver health care in war zones. Medical supplies have become a target in what she described as a ‘blatant breach of international humanitarian law.’ … ‘The aid sector needs to innovate if it is to continue delivering life-saving assistance in the most difficult situations imaginable.

I urge any business or group with a bold idea to apply[,’ Mordaunt said]…” (Dixon, 3/21).
