The surrounding areas of Darshifaa hospital, Aleppo are shelled by government forces. This is where most of the wounded and dead end up from the the FSA controlled areas of Aleppo. The doctors work around the clock aiding the wounded and dying victims of the violence. The hospital lacks specialists and supplies and is not able to give the aid the patients need, many die due to that. At one time there were thousands of doctors in Aleppo, but now only 10 remain to work in the war zone. It is estimated that 80% of the victims are civilians and 20% FSA fighters. Civilians end up with amputations and head trauma because of helicopter bombings while FSA fighters come in with bullet wounds and shrapnel from snipers and ground fighting.
