  • Children’s Hospital and Kafr Nabl Hospital Hit by Airstrikes in Syria21 November 2019
    Two hospitals were targeted by airstrikes today, November 6, 2019 in Idlib, Syria. This brings the total to 4 facilities bombed in 48 hours.
     
    At around 1:30 a.m. Damascus time, two airstrikes, ten minutes apart, targeted the Shannan Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Areeha, Idlib. At least three medical staff were wounded. The hospital was severely damaged and put out of service. There were no casualties as the hospital was immediately evacuated by emergency workers after the first airstrike. Part of the building went up in flames. The hospital was partially supported by UOSSM.
     
    At 6:50 p.m. Damascus time the Kafr Nabl Surgical Hospital was hit by an airstrike. The hospital sustained material damage and was put out of service. No casualties were reported. 
     
    Two days ago on November 4, two UOSSM medical facilities were attacked in Jisr Al Shughour, Idlib in Syria.
     
    An ambulance point was hit by artillery strikes at 1:45 p.m. Damascus time. Minor damages were reported and the facility was put out of service. The ambulance center is supported by UOSSM. 
     
    The UOSSM Jisr Al Shughour Health Center, Idlib, was attacked at 3:30 p.m. Damascus time on November 4, 2019. The primary health care center was directly targeted by artillery strikes and sustained minor damages. No injuries or fatalities were reported.  The facility was put out of service.
     
    “Today the United Nations Syrian Health Cluster publicly released a report stating from January 1, 2019 to September 30, 2019, 65 medical facilities were attacked killing 51 medical staff and injuring 84.  It has been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that these attacks are intentional and will continue as long as perpetrators are not held accountable for war crimes.  It is a miracle that no one was killed in either attack, but I am disgusted that they would target a children’s hospital. Why? Why is the world silent about this?  The real cost nobody sees are the children suffering and dying because all nearby medical facilities have been destroyed. Mothers risk their families’ lives every time they bring them in for a medical treatment. This is unacceptable. Doctors should not be terrified to come into work.  It must stop!  “  Said Dr. Hussam Al Fakir, Chairman of UOSSM International.

  • PHC Shelled In Syria, Dentist and Six Patients Injured5 Oktober 2019
    On October 3 at 1:30 PM Damascus time, the Maarat Al Nouman Primary Health Care Centre in Maarat Al Nouman, Syria, was hit by artillery shelling and heavily damaged. One dentist and six patients were wounded in the attack. No fatalities were reported. 
    In the strongest terms, UOSSM denounces the continued attacks against medical facilities, schools and civilian areas.  Such attacks are a clear violation of international law and must stop immediately.
    “Today’s attack was horrific and further cripples an already fragile medical system. Doctors and nurses should not have to choose between life and death when they go into work each morning. Patients are terrified to get necessary treatment because they know medical facilities are a number one target. These are clear war crimes and the international community must act now.” Said Dr. Hussam Al Fakir, Chairman of UOSSM International.
