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 no more- the war is changing the country beyond recognition

Syria’s three-year-old civil war – a vision of unimaginable desolation
More than 18,000 people are existing under blockade inside Yarmouk, enduring acute shortages of food, medicines and other essentials.

Yarmouk has been cut off since last July (2013). Many residents are now weak and severely malnourished, as well as being exposed to the risk of disease, or death and injury from fighting.
