Mapping the Attacks on Syrian Hospitals
Since March 2011 there have been over 313 attacks on medical facilities in Syria. These attacks are responsible for the deaths of over 670 medical personnel. 90 percent of the attacks were conducted by Syrian government forces.
Physicians for Human Rights has been monitoring this situation in Syria and has created a Google Map of the attacks. Anatomy of a Crisis - A Map of Attacks on Health Care in Syria shows the location of each attack on a medical facility in Syria. Each of the attacks is clearly marked to show whether it was conducted by government forces, non-state armed groups or coalition forces.
If you select an attack's marker on the map you can view more details about the attack and the number of casualties. A choropleth layer also shows the number of medical personnel killed in each region.
