Almost on a daily basis certain villages here come under attack from rockets and helicopters that drop drums full of explosives and metallic devices. The impact of these attacks is devastating for the local population—shrapnel wounds and crush wounds from collapsing houses. It’s a beautiful area and on bright days the clear blue sky gives a stunning view of the mountains. But the beauty is always short-lived, as a clear day means the helicopters are bound to come.
Field Coordinator Katrin Kisswani, head of MSF activities in northern Syria, describes the difficult reality faced by the population and MSF teams in the mountainous area of Jabal Al-Akrad.
