Background story

Aleppo, Syria

A wounded child awaits treatment in one of the few hospitals left standing in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo, in October.

Battle had been raging since July between government forces and insurgents of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) for control of the city. Medical centers treating casualties in rebel-held districts appear to have been specifically targeted by the military, forcing doctors to work from an undercover network of clinics and small field hospitals.
