Rescue workers in Syria have ‘run out of body bags’.
A recent attack on the Omar Bin Abdul Aziz Hospital means that every city in the east of the city has now been hit.
The city Aleppo has been divided between the government in the west and rebel control in the east since 2012.
Syrian troops, backed by Russia began a new assualt last week, Twenty-seven people were killed in this recent attack. The Syrian government pledged its new assault would recapture the rebel-held areas, and would be bombarded with every type of weapon.
The White House has condemned the attack.
Isn’t the fact that rescue workers have run out of body bags reason enough to stop killing and resolve in a peaceful way. A way where no one else will be needlessly killed?
There needs to be a process where this is the beginning of the end of violence…but I really cannot see any light at the end of the tunnel.
The Middle East has always been out-of-hand, but really – this has to stop!
