Introduction :
With the Syrian revolution going into its fourth year, medics are still falling in the Syrian conflict. However, the Syrian government is the main responsible for the most part of the violations that target medics in quantity and quality as it is still targeting hospitals, health centers, pharmacies, and ambulances in the rebels-held areas in addition to targeting medics by directly killing, torturing to death, arresting, kidnapping, or harassing them under the pretext of providing medical services to people and factions that oppose the Syrian government.
