Three UOSSM staff members have been killed in airstrikes in the past week in Daraa as the fierce bombardment continues to escalate. Five medical facilities have been attacked and put out of service, including UOSSM's Busr Al-Harir PHC, leaving tens of thousands with very little access to medical care and emergency care and relief, as the bombing and shelling continues to injure and kill every day. Since June 19, over 150 have been killed, at least 300 were wounded, and at least 100,000 have become internally displaced. Most of the victims are women and children.
