  • Maternity Hospital Bombed In Syria19 Mei 2019
    On May 15 at 2 pm Damascus time, the Tarmala Maternity and Children’s Hospital in South Idlib, Syria was hit by an airstrike and completely destroyed.  Due to heavy targeting of medical facilities in the region, the hospital was evacuated ahead of time. No injuries or casualties were reported. This marks the 19th medical facility bombed in 20 days. The hospital housed many incubators in addition to a dialysis department. The hospital served approximately 6,000 beneficiaries monthly, and its loss is catastrophic for an already crippled medical infrastructure.
    “Targeting a children’s hospitals is beyond vile and sadistic.  We are lucky that no children were killed in this attack, however, losing this facility will lead to great suffering. The medical system in Idlib is already significantly over capacity, leading to long wait times and refused service. Where will women give birth or patients receive dialysis? Patients are avoiding hospitals because they know they will be bombed. Staff are terrified to go into work. Attacks on medical facilities are a clear war crime and perpetrators must be held accountable.” Said Dr. Hussam Al Fakir, Chairman of UOSSM International.
    In the strongest terms, UOSSM condemns the attacks on civilians and medical facilities. UOSSM urges all parties to the conflict to find a peaceful resolution. UOSSM urges the UN Security Council and the international community to implement UNSC resolution 2286 for the protection of medical facilities and aid workers. We urge the international community to release emergency humanitarian funding for medical aid, shelter, food, water and sanitation.

    12 medical facilities have been bombed in the past 9 days, crippling the medical infrastructure in Northern Syria. All three hospitals (Kafr Zeta, Nabd Al hayat, Kafr Nabl) attacked yesterday had their location coordinates shared with military actors through the UN deconfliction mechanisms, to prevent accidental targeting. Targeted attacks on medical facilities are a clear violation of UN Security Council Resolution 2286 and must stop immediately.

The Nabad Al Hayat Hospital was attacked by airstrikes yesterday at 2:45 PM Damascus time, the underground hospital was completely destroyed. At 3:45 PM Damascus time, the Kafr Zeta Surgical Unit (Cave Hospital) was attacked by airstrikes, partially damaged and put out of service.

  • Second Syrian Hospital Hit By Airstrikes In Less Than 24 Hours29 April 2019
    the Al-Latamna hospital in Northern Hama, Syria was hit by an airstrike and put out of service. This was the second air strike on a hospital in less than 24 hours. The airstrikes caused major damage to most of the hospital’s sections and destroyed one ambulance. No injuries or casualties were reported. 
    The hospital provides emergency services and includes a surgical department and a pharmacy to provide medical services to the northern Hama countryside.
    After yesterday’s attacks, the last two hospitals in the northern and western countryside of Hama have ceased operating. There is no longer an emergency center to receive civilians with severe trauma injuries caused by the continuous shelling of the region. Thousands of IDPs (internally displaced persons) in the region are left without any medical care at a time when it is most needed. 
    On Sunday April 28 at 1:30 pm the Al Madiq Hospital in Northern Hama, Syria was hit by an air strike and heavily damaged. There were no injuries or casualties and the facility is now out of service. The hospital, which was supported by UOSSM until the end of March, was one of the few remaining operating hospitals in the region and served as a women and children’s specialty facility. The facility offered maternity services, child services and general surgeries serving approximately 8,000 beneficiaries a month. Five civilians were also killed in the region during the same wave of airstrikes.
    UOSSM denounces attacks on medical facilities, aid workers and civilians. These attacks clearly constitute a war crime and perpetrators must be held accountable by the international community.
