Giulio Piscitelli | Risking their lives to save lives


After more than a year of violent repression and thousands of deaths, broke out in Syria a real civil war. The FSA rebels are fighting against the army of Bashar Al Assad.

The government army bombed major cities every day trying to eliminate the rebels. The civilians and the rebels do not have many forms of procurement and especially severe problems as regards the care of the wounded due to shelling.

The hospitals are set up in safe places from bombing and benefit of medicines transported through smuggling. Doctors and nurses work 24 hours on 24, every day they risk their lives to save others. That’s the story about the makeshift hospital of Al Qusayr, a city 20 km from the Lebanon border; in the hospital 10 nurses and one doctor every day trying to save as many lives as possible risking their lives.
