Doctors are victims, too, in Syria's civil war

The five-year civil war in Syria is taking a toll on those trying to save its victims: the country's doctors. Last week, just days after a United Nations official estimated that 400,000 people had died in that war, Doctors Without Borders announced that an air strike on one of the hospitals it supports in Aleppo had killed more than 50 staff, patients and nearby civilians, according to an article in The Atlantic. In a piece called "The Last Pediatrician in Aleppo," the magazine said the victims included Muhammad Wassim Mo'az, one of the only pediatricians remaining in the city.
