Tariq Ali, who supports the Assad dictatorship & has not made a peep of objection to Syrian & Russian military strategy of deliberately, barbarically, & illegally bombing hospitals & medical personnel in Idlib will be giving a talk on medieval Islamic medicine. Hippocrates weeps.

Meanwhile, Physicians for Human Rights have “rigorously corroborated & documented violations by all combatants since the beginning of the Syrian conflict. From March 2011 through August 2019, PHR corroborated 583 attacks on at least 350 separate health facilities as well as the killing of 912 medical personnel. And these are conservative estimates — the true scale of the slaughter is likely greater. Our documentation indicates that 525 attacks — 91 percent — were perpetrated by the Syrian government and its allies.”
