Syria: Video: A Surgeon in Besieged Aleppo

The photos were taken on October 5 in east Aleppo. They show the exteriors of the M10 hospital, the main trauma centre, which is supported by Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF). The facility was heavily damaged by shelling and forced to suspend activities on Wednesday September 28. On October 1 it was damaged again and went out of service and two days later, while under rehabilitation, it was hit yet another time by bombs and a number of maintenance workers were killed.

Since the end of September, a horrific bombing campaign has been underway in Aleppo, killing hundreds and injuring thousands. More than 250,000 are living under siege in east Aleppo, and the eight remaining hospitals in the area are overwhelmed; doctors are working around-the-clock with limited resources. Dr Abu Huthaifa shares his story as a surgeon working in eastern Aleppo for the past three-and-a-half years. 

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) supports eight hospitals in Aleppo city. It runs six medical facilities across northern Syria and supports more than 150 health centers and hospitals across the country, many of them in besieged areas.
