Nearly 100 Children Were Killed in Aleppo Since Friday | ATTN


UNICEF describes the remaining health care system in eastern Aleppo, as “crumbling,” with roughly 30 doctors left, barely any equipment or emergency medicine, and a rising number of trauma cases. Additionally, “a doctor on the ground told UNICEF that children with low chances of survival are too often left to die due to limited capacity and supplies.”

In 2011, the Syrian civil war began when President Bashar Al-Assad violently used force to crush dissent among hundreds of thousands of pro-democracy protesters who took to the streets to demonstrate against civil rights abuses. Since then, violence escalated, sectarian conflict emerged, and rebel brigades were formed to fight government forces, with the governments of Syria, Russia, and the United States all launching air strikes on various rebel forces on the ground, resulting in the death and displacement of thousands of civilians in the process.
