Syria Assad Assault on Doctors 5

Working in a field hospital is like death!
International law is supposed to protect health workers treating anyone who is sick or wounded. Not in Syria!

The regime has in turn embarked on a brutal campaign to destroy the hospitals and kill their medical staffs.

In response to such barbarism, and in defiance of the new strategy, local doctors, supported by a few daring nongovernmental organizations, have set up field hospitals in factories, farms, houses, cultural centers, caves and even chicken coops to provide surgery and other care to the injured.

The regime is targeting anyone giving medical care in opposition-run areas.

Syria Assad Assault on Doctors 1

The Assad regime has come to view doctors as dangerous, their ability to heal rebel fighters and civilians in rebel-held areas a weapon against the government. Over the past two and a half years, doctors, nurses, dentists, and pharmacists who provide treatment to civilians in contested areas have been arrested and detained; paramedics have been tortured and used as human shields, ambulances have been targeted by snipers and missiles; medical facilities have been destroyed; the pharmaceutical industry devastated.
