Rebels, Civilians, and Ex-Islamic State Fighters Are Treated Side By Side at Prosthetics Clinic on Syrian Border
Affiliations and weapons are left at the door of a free clinic on the Turkish-Syrian border, which has fitted more than 1,000 prosthetic limbs to people on all sides of the conflict.
Crammed with patients and technicians, there is a steady hum of Arabic, a clicking of metal joints, and the occasional peel of laughter.
With the Syrian Civil War still in a deadlock, and the regime’s continuing campaign of indiscriminate mass bombings, more patients will find their way to al Masri's clinic. After their visits, many will return to the front lines a few days later.
