Two members of GOAL’s Syrian staff have suffered serious injuries following an air strike in northern Syria. One of the staff members is in a critical condition while the other will require extensive reconstructive surgery.
A third Syrian staff member was also a victim of the attack, although their injuries are not understood to be life-threatening.
GOAL’s senior management is in contact with the families of the staff members involved.
83% (Eighty-three percent) of all the lights in Syria have gone out since the start of the conflict there, a global coalition of humanitarian and human rights organisations has revealed ahead of the fourth anniversary on March 15.
Analysing satellite images, scientists based at Wuhan University in China, in co-operation with the #WithSyria coalition of 130 non-governmental organisations, have shown that the number of lights visible over Syria at night has fallen by 83% since March 2011.
