Health Workers Call For End To Targeting Of Syrian Hospitals In Open Letter

The Guardian: Stop the carnage: doctors call for an end to Syria hospital airstrikes
“Dozens of prominent doctors have called for urgent action to halt the bombing campaign by Syrian and Russian planes that has targeted more than 20 hospitals in Syria’s north-west, putting many out of action and leaving millions of people without proper health care. … The Syrian opposition were promised war planes would avoid identified sites on bombing raids; instead they have endured more than a month of fierce attacks. … They have also destroyed key parts of the health care system, says a letter from doctors around the world published in the Observer…” (Graham-Harrison/McKernan, 6/2).
