Published on:
It is with great regret Syria Relief have to announce that one of our Primary Healthcare Centres (PHC) in southern Idlib was the target of shelling at 12.15 EEST / 10.15 BST today (Thursday 3rd October 2019). One of the Syria Relief medical team and six patients were injured by the shelling, one of whom, is in a serious condition.

The PHC was hit by more than 5 shells, causing significant damage to the building and equipment. We believe this to be a deliberate attack. The facility could not have been confused for a legitimate military target. It is a charity-run health centre to treat patients. It should not have been targeted for war. It is of no threat to anyone. On the contrary, it is there to save lives.

We once again call on all military actors on the conflict to respect International Humanitarian Law and International Human Rights Law and ceasing to deliberately attacks medical facilities, schools and other civilian infrastructure.

We ask for your prayers, thoughts and donations to help us repair our damaged PHC. Please go to our Medical Appeal page to help us fund its refurbishment so it can go back to giving medical treatment to Syrian civilians.
