Aleppo’s Last Working Hospital Has Been Destroyed by Airstrikes
All hospitals in Syria’s rebel-held eastern Aleppo are out of service after days of days of heavy airstrikes by Syrian government and Russian warplanes.
“There are currently no hospitals functioning in the besieged area of the city,” the World Health Organization said in a statement, citing reports from its partners in the area. The shutdown means there are no facilities left to aid wounded civilians in eastern Aleppo, where as many as 300,000 people are living under a siege imposed by the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.
WHO noted that some health services “are still available through clinics,” but trauma care, major surgeries and other responses to serious conditions have stopped. International Development Secretary Priti Patel called the news ‘sickening,’ and condemned the ‘inhumanity’ or Russian and Syrian forces.
WE SAID THIS: This, indeed, is sickening.
