ASSAD REGIME ‘FREELY’ KILLS SYRIANS

Dar al-Shifa hospital where doctors struggled to patch up toddlers, rebels, and even government snipers—until Assad’s forces bombed it into oblivion.

The reason Assad forces aim for the hospital is that “when you kill one doctor, it is better than killing 1,000 fighters.”

On November 21, 2011 Assad’s troops succeeded in leveling the Dar al-Shifa hospital with a missile strike, killing at least 15 people including four members of the volunteer medical staff. Photographer Niclas Hammarström was at the hospital in the month prior to its destruction, documenting the work of those who put their own lives on the line to save others in the heart of the death zone.

Written by unknown soldier of WWI:
The blood swept lands and seas of red,
Where angels dare to tread.
As I put my hand to reach,
As God cried a tear of pain as the angels fell,
Again and again.
