Five UOSSM medical staff were killed last month in the line of duty. The five medics, three nurses and two drivers, were responding to a dispatch from the Khan Touman Medical Point in southern Aleppo, to triage wounded civilians to a nearby hospital.
Upon their arrival the area was hit with another airstrike claiming the lives of four of the medics and placing the fifth medic, a nurse in critical condition. The two ambulances were also destroyed. The fifth nurse, died a few days later due to the extent of his injuries.
