(Foreign Policy) – Mahmoud Hariri, a surgeon born and raised in Syria, has lost track of how many times his hospital in Aleppo has been bombed since the Syrian civil war began in 2011. He’s seen patients die on operating tables during attacks. One patient pulled a tube out of his own body to flee a hospital as it was bombed. Once, while Hariri was visiting a nearby medical facility, it too was bombed. As he fled, he discovered a human brain on the street outside. He picked it up, put it in a small box, and later returned it to the hospital.
