On the sixth anniversary of the Syrian war, three Syrian doctors testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. For security reasons, two wore surgical masks to hide their appearance. 

Dr. Mohamed Abu Rajab ran the largest trauma hospital in the eastern part of Aleppo, which he says was targeted 22 times from the time it opened in 2013. By October, it had been bombed out of service. 

“I dream of one day returning to my home with my family and living in peace. But I need your help.”

—Dr. Mohamed Abu Rajab

“I am asking you today to hold the perpetrators of these attacks accountable … This can’t be the new norm in Syria.”
