DOCTORS IN SYRIA DEMAND ACTION
The siege on Syria’s largest city, Aleppo, has long since ended, but the city still bears the wounds from the month long battle. Failing infrastructure, people trapped by lingering fighting, and curbed access to aid have all prompted action from the 15 doctors left in the city. In a letter to President Obama, the medical practitioners said that "We do not need tears or sympathy or even prayers. We need action”. They went on to propose that the President send urgently needed medical supplies and create a “lifeline” to ensure the continued influx of those supplies.
