Well it was "intentional" by at least one metric: They hit it with several air strikes, despite it being on the list of known MSF sites via GPS coordinates. MSF is challenging the US to put up or shut up about how they got this so wrong.

Anybody who thinks that the U.S. intentionally bombed the shit out of a Doctors Without Borders hospital is nuts.
