An international aid group that supports doctors in war zones says one of its Syrian surgeons has been killed in the northern Syrian province of Aleppo.
Doctors Without Borders said in a statement Thursday that the 28-year-old surgeon, Dr. Muhammad Abyad, was killed in an attack. Abyad, whose body was found Tuesday, had been working in an Aleppo hospital run by the group.
Doctors Without Borders, also known as Medecins Sans Frontieres, operates six hospitals and four clinics in northern Syria. The group was among the first to confirm deaths in the Aug. 21 chemical arms attack, saying more than 300 people had been killed.
