Report: More than 4.3M Syrian children need humanitarian aid

Syria’s civil war has left the country’s health system so severely crippled that some patients are “opting to be knocked out with metal bars for lack of anesthesia,” according to a new report by international charity Save the Children.
The report, A Devastating Toll, details the impact of three years of war on the health of the country’s children and adds that more than 10,000 children have been lost as a direct result of the violence.
"We received a little girl with critical injuries; we could do nothing but wait for her to die because we didn’t have the equipment or the medicines. Till now I can’t remove her face from my mind," said one health worker identified in the report only as Anas.
