A week into the Russian airstrike offensive on Northern Aleppo, border hospitals like the Bab al Salama Hospital run by Independent Doctors Association are completely overwhelmed. Director Dr. Mahmoud Mustafa talked to Reuters about the new medical emergency unfolding in Aleppo:
“We are seeing new types of injuries due to Russian air strikes,” said Mahmoud Mustafa, director of the Independent Doctors Association, a Turkish-based Syrian group that runs a field hospital in Bab al-Salama on the Syrian side of the main border crossing north of the Aleppo, near the town of Azaz.”We are increasingly seeing what we call multiple-trauma injuries because of the bombs and the heavy weapons they are using. There are large burn cases, lots of amputations, and internal traumas,” he told Reuters in Gaziantep, Turkey.
