Everyone should know, the people here love life, and we want to live

This is a video message from Dr. Salm, posted at 9am this morning from besieged Aleppo.

I am currently in one of the besieged neighborhoods in East Aleppo. We are being bombarded with all kinds of weapons. Tanks shells, rocket launchers, artillery shells, and mortars.

Medical staff and medical points are desperately trying to provide help to injured victims. There are dozens of victims. The humanitarian situation requires urgent intervention by the government and sponsors of the deal (ceasefire) which was agreed upon yesterday, to intervene quickly in order to stop the bombing.

The situation is entering a more dangerous phase, a real massacre. Immediate intervention cannot be delayed. The governments who signed the deal to protect civilians and secure the safe passage of civilians cannot wait any longer or we will face a real massacre.

Everyone should know, the people here love life, and we want to live. We hope the international community will help us and stop the massacres, destruction, and killing. Peace for all, peace for all.”

Given the circumstances, it is very hard to come by data from Aleppo. We will do our best to get you accurate information every day.
