War surgeon Dr. David Nott, who spent over a month in Syria, claims that snipers are using civilians as target practice, and turn it into a game, targeting different parts of the bodies.
“From the first patients that came in in the morning, you could almost tell what you would see for the rest of the day. It was a game. We heard the snipers were winning packets of cigarettes for hitting the correct number of targets.”
On one day more than six pregnant women were caught by sniper fire and on another day two heavily pregnant women were targeted. They survived but their unborn babies died, one suffering a bullet to the brain.
“The women were all shot through the uterus, so that must have been where they were aiming for... This was deliberate. It was hell beyond hell,” he told the paper.
Although Nott can not be certain which side was responsible, he believes it was Assad's.
Either way, they're all animals.
