Syria’s health workers hit by double tragedy after quake

A surgery team operates on an injured youth at a hospital in the town of Harim in Syria’s rebel-held northwestern Idlib province on the border with Turkey, on February 10, 2023, in the aftermath of a deadly earthquake.

Following the 7.8-magnitude earthquake rocked Turkey and Syria on February 6, toppling hundreds of buildings and leaving a death toll of at least 3,581 in Syria, supplies have been slow to arrive in the war-torn country where years of conflict have ravaged the healthcare system, especially in the rebel-held areas in the country’s northwest.
