aleppo

FYI you don’t need to be either Syrian or Arab to feel their pain

Aleppo, Syria within the past 8 days:

260 airstrikes, 110 artillery strikes

18 missiles and 86 bombs

At least 253 civilians, including 49 children, have died in shelling, rocket fire and air strikes in Aleppo since the surge in fighting, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group.

Please, at least signal boost this to let the world become more aware of the travesties that the people of Aleppo and throughout Syria are going through. Erase the silence. Erase the world’s blindness towards the people of Syria.

Last Night, My Friend, Aleppo’s Most Qualified Remaining Pediatrician, Was Killed

Dear friends,

I am Dr. Hatem, the director of the Children’s Hospital in Aleppo.

Last night, 27 staff and patients were killed in an airstrike on Al Quds Hospital nearby. My friend Dr Muhammad Waseem Maaz (pictured below), the city’s most qualified pediatrician, was killed in the attack.

He used to work at our Children’s Hospital during the day and then he’d go to Al Quds Hospital to attend to emergencies overnight.

Dr. Maaz and I used to spend six hours a day together. He was friendly, kind and he used to joke a lot with the whole staff. He was the loveliest doctor in our hospital.

I’m in Turkey now, and he was supposed to visit his family here after I returned to Aleppo. He hadn’t seen them in four months.

Dr. Maaz stayed in Aleppo, the most dangerous city in the world, because of his devotion to his patients. Hospitals are often targeted by government and Russian air forces.

Days before Dr. Maaz’s life was taken, an airstrike hit only 200 meters away from our hospital. When the bombing intensifies, the medical staff run down to the ground floor of the hospital carrying the babies’ incubators in order to protect them.

Like so many others, Dr. Maaz was killed for saving lives. Today we remember Dr. Maaz’s humanity and his bravery. Please share his story so others may know what medics in Aleppo and across Syria are facing.

The situation today is critical — Aleppo may soon come under siege. We need the world to be watching.

Thank you for keeping us in your thoughts,

Dr. Hatem

The atrocities in Brussels happen almost daily on the streets of Baghdad, Aleppo and Damascus. Western missiles and Isis bombs kill more innocents in a week than die in Europe in a year. The difference is the media response. A dead Muslim is an unlucky mutt in the wrong place at the wrong time. A dead European is front-page news.
—  Simon Jenkins, ‘The scariest thing about Brussels is our reaction to it’, The Guardian

Why are people so senseless and heartless? Most people usually pass by the civil war in Syria and think of it as a problem in another place.
I think about it every day and night.
I think about it when I’m in school, when I’m sitting in a classroom, learning and discussing, while children are literally dying from air strikes in Syria.
I still can’t believe that a hospital, teaming with thousands of doctors, nurses, patients of all kind, and children, was targeted by an air strike. I’m heartbroken by this fact and I can’t seem to wrap my head around it. I still can’t believe it’s been FIVE YEARS OF THIS FUCKING CIVIL WAR AND NATIONS LIKE OURS AND THE UNITED NATIONS HAVE YET TO INTERVENE TO STOP THE VIOLENCE
Fuck the United States and parts of the European Union for refusing to take in Syrian refugees who are in desperate need of a home
Fuck Russia for intervening and Bashar al-Assad’s behalf
Fuck the west for not paying attention to the violence and heartlessness that is occurring, you only cry when bombs hit Europe every few years, never when bombs hit Aleppo every day
And finally
Fuck Bashar al-Assad for killing his own people, for igniting this violent civil war, and displacing millions of his own civilians as refugees, your a heartless son of a bitch, who deserves to be killed and his senseless, cold heart to be buried with him

The situation is absolutely horrifying in Syria. I cry and sob for the people of Syria, and I continue to think about the children on a daily basis. I cried when I saw a video on BBC of children being carried by rebels in Aleppo running from a building that has been bombarded, was on fire, and was likely collapsing. I can never forget the scene of a little boy crying out for his parents-screaming for them, as the solider takes them to a van to get them out of the city to safety. The picture of little Aylan Kurdi’s body washed up on the Turkish beaches. Or the video of a mother sobbing as she holds the body of her child in her arms.
This is all horrifying and painful to even look at. We as a society need to stand together and demand that the UN step in on the behalf of the Syrian people and stop the violence.
UN, please #savesyria
