State of Hospitals in Aleppo

Stephen O'Brien, the United Nations Under-Security-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, recently discussed the condition of medical facilities in Aleppo.  He said that the hospitals are "All but obliterated", making it almost impossible to get people the emergency medical attention they desperately need.  With the constant bombings, hundreds of people are dying every week because their is no place for their injuries to be treated.  O'Brien said, "We are in a race against time to protect and save citizens in eastern Aleppo city."  The situation in Aleppo is getting worse every day, and something needs to be done to help the innocent civilians soon.
