(Newsweek) – In light of the deteriorating situation in Syria, the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday unanimously adopted a resolution calling for all parties involved in conflicts worldwide to end attacks on medical facilities and health care workers. The vote comes amid ongoing violence in the Syrian city of Aleppo, which saw dozens of patients and medical workers die last week in a shelling of a Western-supported hospital. More than 50 people died in the attack on al-Quds hospital, situated in a rebel-held area of Aleppo, including children and one of the last remaining pediatricians in the city. The hospital was particularly important for internal and gynecological medicine.
