Bashar al-Assad in a recent interview denied that his army has deliberately targeted civilians and hospitals, do you agree with his argument that 'killing civilians wouldn't help me win this conflict, there is no reason why i'd do it'? if not, why?

Targeting hospitals would help him if those hospitals treat rebels. It would also send a message to civilians that he's he'll stoop to any level to maintain order/power, so it's better to stay quite. And finally, this ones a bit more speculation, but he probably has no issue with killing off sunnis or making their lives worse to maintain his minority controlled government of alawite shias.
