(VOA) – The World Health Organization reports an alarming spike in violence against medical and humanitarian workers and health care facilities in war-torn Syria. The World Health Organization reports it has verified dozens of attacks on health care facilities, ambulances, services and workers in Syria’s combat zones this year. WHO’s monitoring system reports 28 hospitals and other facilities last month were targeted in eastern Ghouta, which currently is under relentless air and ground attack from Syrian forces and their Russian ally. Spokesman Christian Lindmeier said health care facilities also were hit in Idlib and Homs.
