PBS NewsHour: Hospitals and doctors under attack in Aleppo ‘difficult to replace’

A picture taken on April 28, 2016 shows Syrian men inspecting the damage at the Al-Quds hospital building following reported airstrikes on the rebel-held neighbourhood of Sukkari in the northern city of Aleppo. Doctors Without Borders condemned Thursday the "outrageous" air strike on a hospital it was supporting in the war-torn northern Syrian city of Aleppo, where doctors were among those killed. Local rescue workers said the overnight strike on the Al-Quds hospital and a nearby residential building left 30 people dead. Among them was the only paediatrician operating in the rebel-controlled eastern parts of Aleppo city, they said. Doctors Without Borders, which is also known by the acronym MSF, said two doctors were among 14 people killed in the strike on the hospital. In an online statement Thursday, Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said it had been donating medical supplies to Al-Quds since 2012. MSF said it had been donating medical supplies since 2012 to the 34-bed Al-Quds hospital, where eight doctors and 28 nurses worked full time. Karam Al-Masri/AFP
