Syria: Al Jazeera: ‘We will not leave Syria’

Syrian activists on Wednesday called on the international community to “stand together against the Syrian regime and the US-led coalition for a united Syria” in the wake of a devastating attack on a medical centre and its staff.

The US-backed government on Tuesday carried out a devastating airstrike on the rebel-held eastern city of al-Zahraa, killing at least 60 people, including at least 15 doctors, including eight who were working at the hospital.

Activists said more than 50 people had been injured and that at least six people were killed in the attack.

Syria has been in a state of civil war since March 2011, when President Bashar al-Assad’s government launched an uprising against him.

The country is in the throes of a humanitarian crisis, with an estimated 20 million people displaced and counting.

More than 200,000 people have been killed in Syria since the war began, according to UN figures.
