Statement on destroyed hospital formerly managed by Syria Relief

Latest News

Published on:
It is with great sadness that we can confirm that a hospital that was formerly staffed by Syria Relief and for which we provided medicine and equipment for, in Shnan, Syria, was the target of a deliberate airstrike yesterday (Wednesday 6th November) morning. The building has largely been destroyed.

Fortunately, no one has been killed. However, many people have been injured and vital medical equipment, many of which was sourced by Syria.

Just last month our Primary Healthcare Centre, 10 miles away in Ma’rat al Nu’man was also hit by shelling.

Yet again, it is civilians who are paying the price in this conflict, this time by losing a hospital. A hospital needed more than ever during a time of conflict. This hospital was offering vital medical care to men, women and children.

We want to, once again, implore all actors in this conflict to stop targeting hospitals, to stop targeting schools and to stop targeting civilians. They are #NotATarget.

Video of the hospital in action prior to the attack is also available.
