The local council in the town of Tal Aldaman in rural Aleppo on Sunday said that it had completed 70 percent of the project to build a major hospital in the town, adding that the hospital will provide medical care for up to 100,000 civilians in various specialties.
Director of the medical office in the town Dr. Khallouf Khallouf said that the hospital will have departments for pediatrics and obstetrics as well as a department of surgery once qualified surgeons are available.
Khallouf added that the hospital, which is supported by the Salam aid organization, will provide medical services to around 100,000 people in the town of Tal Aldaman and Jabal Alhiss area so that residents of these two towns do not have to travel to the town of Saraqib to receive medical care.
Hand in Hand aid organization on May 25 opened a women’s and children’s hospital in the border town of Atma in northern rural Idlib.
Hospitals and health facilities have been a constant target for the Assad regime and Russian airstrikes which destroyed many hospitals especially in the provinces of Idlib, Aleppo, and Hama and killed many patients and medical workers.
