Meet The Syrian Doctor Treating Aleppo’s Civilians



 'Khatib is the only doctor serving two hospitals in Aleppo. He says the supplies come from various international aid organizations. He has worked in four different hospitals since the start of the war. Two of them were shelled by the regime. He said a Palestinian doctor visited him two years into the war. “He asked: “Why don’t you give the GPS coordinates of the hospital to the regime so they won’t hit it? We always do that with Israel,”” Khatib recalled with a bitter laugh.

 He says he does not understand why Assad targets hospitals. “Why would the regime be killing the children? Why would the regime be killing the women, the old people? Why would they be hitting with chemical weapons?” He wondered aloud. “He (Assad) has crossed all the lines.”
