Few events in Syria have attracted as much attention as the alleged
chemical weapon attack on the town of Khan Shaykhun
The callous use of biological agents to target civilians is a “crime
against humanity <http://www.abc.net.au/tv/qanda/txt/s4635101.htm>”
and a serious
violation of international law
according to human rights experts.

Far less attention has been given to the Syrian government’s targeting of
health-care facilities in rebel territory. This ruthless strategy, which
also constitutes a crime against in humanity, has made it impossible for
humanitarian organisations to provide care for injured soldiers and
civilians in some cases.

The Syrian American Medical Society
 reports that at least 168 attacks on medical facilities were carried out
in the second half of 2016. These injured at least 80 medical staff and
killed 26. This adds to an estimated death toll of over 800 medical
personnel since the conflict began.
