All eastern Aleppo hospitals reported to be damaged in attacks

Doctors Without Borders, known by its French acronym MSF, said in a statement on Friday that hospitals in the eastern side of Syria's Aleppo have been attacked 23 times since July, damaging all eight facilities that have not yet been shuttered or destroyed.


The statement read that one of east Aleppo's two main surgical facilities has been out of service since Oct. 1. The organization supports eight hospitals across the city.


The UN estimates 275,000 people are trapped in a Russian-backed government siege of the city's rebel-held eastern districts, subjected to relentless bombardment.
