لحظات مؤلمة في حياة مسعف سوري
أنقذ الرضيعة وانهار باكيًا: تخيلتها ابنتي!



    انتشلها من تحت الركام وأجهش بالبكاء
أجهش أبو كفاح، أحد رجال الإنقاذ السوريين المعروفين باسم "الخوذات البيضاء"، باكيًا وهو ينتشل رضيعة عمرها 30 يومًا من أنقاض أحد الأبنية السكنية في إدلب بعدما قصفته طائرات روسية وأخرى تابعة للنظام السوري. وهذه الطفلة هي الناجية الوحيدة بعدما لقي خمسة من أفراد عائلتها حتفهم. وقد تمكن أبو كفاح من إنقاذ هذه الرضيعة بعد ساعتين من قصف البناء الذي قتل فيه 11 مدنيًا، بينهم 7 أطفال.

وتمكنت الكاميرات من التقاط دموع أبو كفاح الذي قال بعدها إنه تخيّل هذه الرضيعة وكأنها ابنته، فضمها إلى صدره وأسرع إلى سيارة الاسعاف وهو يصيح "يا الله"، إذ كانت مغطاة بالغبار وببعض الكدمات والجروح، وأرسلها إلى أحد المستشفيات القريبة.

وقال: "حين قرّبتها إلى صدري، شعرت بأسى كبير".

المأساة المستمرة

هذه عينة صغيرة جدًا عن المأساة السورية التي تعيشها اليوم المناطق غير الخاضعة لقبضة نظام الأسد، والتي يقصفها الطيران الروسي بعشوائية ومن دون رحمة، مخلفًا الآلاف من القتلى في صفوف المدنيين، وسط صمت عالمي مريب.

واعتبر ستيفن أوبريان، مدير العمليات الإنسانية في الأمم المتحدة، الخميس أن الوضع في حلب "أخطر كارثة إنسانية تشهدها سورية حتى الآن". وقال أمام مجلس الأمن إن النظام الصحي في القسم الشرقي المحاصر من المدينة "على وشك الانهيار بشكل كامل، وإن الأطفال هم الأكثر تأثرًا بهذه الأزمة، فحلب تشهد شحًا في المعدات الطبية والغذاء والماء، والنظام قصف شبكات المياه شرق حلب ويستبعد المعدات الطبية من قوافل المساعدات الغذائية".

وتتواصل الغارات الجوية الروسية على حلب، وقد سقط برميلان متفجران على الأقل على أكبر مستشفى في مناطق تسيطر عليها المعارضة من المدينة، بحسب إدارة المستشفى. وقال أدهم سحلول من الجمعية الطبية الأميركية السورية لوكالة الصحافة الفرنسية إن برميلين متفجرين أصابا مستشفى M10 وإن هناك تقارير عن سقوط قنابل عنقودية عليه.

وقال ريك برينان، مدير إدارة الطوارئ والاستجابة الإنسانية في منظمة الصحة العالمية، الجمعة إن المعارك في شرق حلب المحاصر أسفرت عن مقتل 338 شخصًا في الأسابيع القليلة الماضية، بينهم 106 أطفال، وإصابة 846 بينهم 261 طفلًا.

وأضاف خلال إفادة للأمم المتحدة في جنيف: "نطلب أربعة أشياء: أوقفوا القتل، وأوقفوا الهجمات على الرعاية الصحية، واسمحوا بخروج المرضى والمصابين، واسمحوا بدخول المساعدات".
دموع أبو كفاح التي تختصر الألم السوري كله

نوبل البديلة

في خضم هذه المجزرة السورية، يبقى فريق المسعفين والمنقذين في الدفاع المدني، المعروف باسم "الخوذات البيضاء"، هو النور الأبيض الباقي في ظلام سورية المضرج بدماء أبنائها. وأعلنت مؤسسة "رايت لايفليهود" السويدية فوز هذا الفريق بجائزتها "نوبل البديلة"، بفضل نشاط الفريق الشجاع والناجح في مساعدة الناس وإنقاذهم، مهما تعرض أفراده للخطر، بحسب أولي فون أوكسكول، المدير التنفيذي للمؤسسة، الذي أكد أن فوز الفريق ليس مردودًا إلى التزامه وشجاعته فحسب، بل أيضًا إلى كفاءته ونجاحه في تقديم مساعدة حقيقية على الأرض.

أضاف فون أوكسكول: "يأتي هؤلاء بعد سقوط القنابل، فينتشلون الناس من تحت أنقاض المنازل المقصوفة، لأن كثيرين يبقون أحياء تحت هذه المنازل. وينطوي عملهم على خطر كبير، لأن الطائرات كثيرًا ما تعود وتقصف المبنى ذاته مرة أخرى".

وكان مشاهير أميركيون أطلقوا حملة عالمية طالبوا فيها بإعطاء جائزة "نوبل" للسلام لفريق "الخوذات البيضاء" الذي ينشط منذ عام 2013 في إنقاذ المدنيين في مناطق المعارضة السورية التي تتعرض لقصف مستمر من طيران النظام السوري وحلفائه الروس، بأسلحة محرمة دوليًا. ويضم هذا الفريق نحو 3000 متطوع لا يملكون خبرة سابقة في الإنقاذ والإسعاف.

أكدت المنظمة غير الحكومية "سيف ذي تشيلدرن" الجمعة أن الأطفال لم يعودوا بأمان في حلب ولا حتى في المدارس تحت الأرض التي يفترض أن تحميهم، بسبب استخدام "قنابل خارقة للتحصينات" ضد الأحياء المحاصرة في المدينة الواقعة في شمال سوريا.

وقالت المنظمة في بيان إن استخدام هذه القنابل قد يشكل جريمة حرب. وأضافت أن "المدارس الواقعة في شرق حلب التي يفترض أن تفتح أبوابها غدا (السبت) ستبقى مغلقة على الأرجح، بسبب هجوم وحشي يحرم حوالي مئة طفل من التعليم".

وبدأت القوات السورية منذ أسبوع هجوما واسعا بدعم من حليفها الروسي لاستعادة كل المدينة. ويحاصر الجيش السوري أحياء الفصائل المقاتلة التي تضم حوالي 250 ألف نسمة، بينما يقوم الطيران الروسي والسوري بقصفها.

وقال مدير العمليات الإنسانية في الأمم المتحدة ستيفن اوبراين في مجلس الأمن الدولي الخميس إن الوضع في حلب هو "أخطر كارثة إنسانية تشهدها سوريا حتى الآن". وأضاف أن النظام الصحي في القسم الشرقي المحاصر من المدينة "على وشك الانهيار بشكل كامل".

والأطفال الـ100 ألف الموجودون في هذه المنطقة المحاصرة التي تقصف باستمرار "هم الضحايا الاكثر تأثرا" بهذه الأزمة، على حد قوله.

وتحدث الأمين العام للأمم المتحدة عن استخدام "قنابل خارقة للتحصينات" تهدف إلى تدمير منشآت تحت الأرض، وهي بالتالي قادرة على اختراق غرف محصنة تحت الأرض.

وأوضحت المنظمة أنها تدعم 13 مدرسة بينها ثماني مدارس أقيمت تحت الأرض.

وأضافت "بسبب استخدام قنابل خارقة للتحصينات يمكن أن تخترق الأرض على عمق 4 أو 5 أمتار قبل ان تنفجر، حتى هذه المدارس أصبحت أماكن خطيرة".

ونقلت "سيف ذي تشيلدرن" عن عمر الذي يتولى إدارة واحدة من هذه المدارس في شرق حلب أن "الآباء يخشون إرسال أبنائهم إلى المدرسة لان كل شيء يستهدف"، موضحا أن "دوي القنابل المضادة للتحصينات بحد ذاته يثير الذعر والهلع".

 

مقاطع فيديو أحرقت قلوب "الحلبيين" في سوريا

 

 

مطحنة حقيقية بكل ما للكلمة من معنى في حلب المحاصرة.. فيديوهات تظهر أطفالاً بأجساد ممزقة، براميل متفجرة تسقط منازل، أشلاء متناثرة، نحيب لأمهات يرثين أبناءهن، مواطنون يحملون قتلى.. وإعلام النظام السوري يبث الأسبوع المنصرم إعلاناً تضمن مقطع فيديو لليالي حلب الملاح.

هذه المقارنة التي وصفتها صحيفة الـ"واشنطن بوست" بالمشاهد التي "تصيب بالغثيان"، سببها المساعدة الروسية للنظام السوري في عملية إبادة لمناطق حلب الشرقية التي تسيطر عليها مجموعات المعارضة المسلحة في ظل قصف جوي همجي وهجوم بري هو الأكبر على المدينة حتى الآن، في حين يحضر حوالي 30 طبيبا لمعالجة ربع مليون سوري محاصر، على هذا الجانب من المدينة.

فعلى بعد أميال فقط من مسارح الذبح التي تجري، يبث إعلام النظام السوري فيديوهات لـ"حفلات Nightlife" التي يعيشها سكان حلب الغربية الواقعة تحت سيطرة قوات الأسد. ويتضح من التعليقات التي انتشرت تحت تغريدة "سانا الإنجليزية" على صفحتها في تويتر، أن الفيديو الذي يظهر ملهى ليليا في حلب ما هو إلا جزء من البروباغدا الإعلامية التي يريد من خلالها النظام السوري إظهار نفسه على أنه منفتح ومن تحت سيطرته يعيش بسلام.

وبحسب تقرير نشرته صحيفة "واشنطن بوست"، فالحياة في حلب الغربية هي أيضا لم تعد كما كانت من قبل، فوقع الحرب والقصف يؤثر عليها أيضاً، خاصة مع توقف في بعض الخدمات الأساسية كالمياه.

إلى ذلك، بثت مراكز إعلامية محلية، وحسابات الدفاع المدني ونشطاء، مقاطع فيديو مروعة لآثار الغارات التي تجاوزت 150 غارة منذ مساء الخميس الماضي، على أحياء مدينة حلب وبلداتها.

في هذا الفيديو يظهر رجال القبعات البيض وهم يحاولون إخراج طفلة من تحت أنقاض منزلها الذي دمرته طائرات روسية عن بكرة أبيه، في بلدة حريتان بريف حلب.

 

وهنا مشاهد مروعة وقاسية للغاية للحظة انتشال جثث طفلين ووالديهما من تحت الأنقاض في حي المرجة شرقي حلب.

 

وفي المستشفى الميداني بحي القاطرجي عرض مركز حلب الإعلامي مشهداً مؤلماً لطفل أصيب بقصف الطائرات الروسية على الحي.

 

وحتى تكون في صورة ما حل بحي القاطرجي فربما عليك أن تشاهد هذا الفيديو.

 

وكانت عدسات الكاميرا وثقت مشاهد لأب مفطور القلب يودع ابنه الذي قضى في القصف على حي الصالحين بحلب.

 

سال الدم على أرغفة الخبز بعد أن استهدفت قوات الأسد بالمدفعية الثقيلة، فجر الأربعاء، فرناً للخبز في حي المعادي بمدينة حلب المحاصرة، بالتزامن مع غارات عنيفة استهدفت أحياء المدينة.

I hope making Kate Silverton cry on TV helps the West understand our plight, says Syrian hero who pulled month-old baby girl to safety from rubble 

  • Air strikes on city of Idlib trapped the baby girl under rubble on Thursday
  • Abu Kifah was praised as a hero after salvaging the girl in the city of Idleb
  • The rescue worker says he feels like a father when he saves children
  • Baby Maartouk is now in hospital and is reportedly doing well
  • Thousands killed since Russian bombings began on September 30, 2015
  • At least 20,000 civilians have also been wounded in the Russia
  • The United Nations warns that a humanitarian catastrophe is unfolding 
  • WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGES 

His face wet with tears, a rescue worker clutched 30-day-old baby Maartouk to his chest as she wailed in distress, her yellow baby grow covered in dust from the attack that almost killed her.

However, he was unaware that he would be the only person connected to the story crying, and he is hoping that the raw emotion shown by BBC presenter Kate Silverton as she broadcast the story will help highlight the severity of their situation. 

Told that Silverton had cried after presenting the video of him saving baby Maartouk, Abu Kifah told MailOnline that anything that helped to convey what was happening in in Syria was helpful. 

It is normal to cry at this and if it helps the west understand the voice of the Syrian people that is a good thing, he said.

He was praised as a hero after rescuing the baby from a suspected Russian warplane attack that left her trapped under rubble for two hours in the northern city of Idleb.

I was happy last night – it was very emotional because we saved three people: the mother and her two baby girls, he added.

It is not the first time that we have saved people, but when it is kids, it is very sensitive and affects us a lot, so what can you imagine about that baby? It is normal to feel happy for her.

Although the 29-year-old is childless, he said that he felt like, I was her father and she was my real daughter.

The volunteer with the Syria Civil Defense team was filmed sobbing helplessly as he rushed the baby girl to hospital in an ambulance, crying, Oh Lord, oh God.

He clutched baby Hamida to his chest, her tiny fists waving, as a medic put iodine and a white bandage over her forehead. Later footage showed the month-old child being placed on a black hospital bed before receiving further medical attention. MailOnline understands she is doing well.

I always hide my feelings, but yesterday I failed, Abu Kifah told MailOnline. I am a strong and serious man, but the situation yesterday was very powerful, and even now I cry when I watch the video again. 

All people who watched it also cried, and this video is only one per cent of what is happening to us.

Thousands of children have been killed in the five-year long Syrian conflict, while two million are out of school.

Abu Kifah saved baby Hamida from a blistering attack in which at least six people died, although some sources put the death toll as high as 21. Her mother and two-year-old sister were also rescued from under the crumpled buildings and were hospitalised. Her father is not thought to have been badly hurt.

Footage from the scene showed bloodied bodies being pulled away on stretchers, and another baby being carried to safety.

Since 2013 Abu Kifar has been a volunteer in the Syria Civil Defense group, also known as the White Helmets, after the headgear that protects them from falling masonry.

With the help of UK government funding, they have saved more than 60,000 lives and have been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

They rush towards the scenes of attacks blamed on Syrian or Russian aircraft, which drop barrel bombs and missiles onto civilian areas, hospitals and market places.

But the work is highly dangerous.

Syrian regime aircraft are accused of double-tap air strikes, meaning they circle round to bomb the same location twice, killing the emergency response teams who rushed to the victims of the initial attack. More than 145 White Helmets have been killed while working since 2013.

A growing number of their offices have also been damaged or destroyed in apparently targeted attacks by Assad regime forces.

Abu Kifar said that moments like the rescue of Hamida motivated the teams to continue their work, despite the grave dangers they face.

When we saved her [Hamida] after more than two hours, we were happy, and that leads us and push us to continue our job despite the risk, because we save people. 

The footage proved too much for BBC newsreader Kate Silverton, who cried live on air after watching the clip.

At least 11 civilians, including seven children, died during attacks on Idlib, nearby Jarjanaz and central Hama province on Thursday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

An agonising 365 days have now passed since Russia began its barbarous and relentless bombing campaign on Syria in support of President Bashar al-Assad.

Putins bombs have killed more than 3,800 civilians in this time, a monitoring group said on Friday as international outcry mounted.

Bombs are raining from Syria-led coalition planes and the whole of east Aleppo has become a giant kill box, Doctors Without Borders (MSF) director of operations Xisco Villalonga said on Friday.

The aid charity appealed to the Syrian government and its Russian ally to stop bombing rebel-held eastern Aleppo, warning they were provoking a bloodbath among civilians in the city. 

The Syrian government must stop the indiscriminate bombing, and Russia as an indispensable political and military ally of Syria has the responsibility to exert the pressure to stop this, he said.

The United Nations has warned that a humanitarian catastrophe is unfolding in Aleppo unlike any witnessed so far in Syrias brutal five-year war, which has claimed more than 300,000 lives.

According to the UN, only around 35 doctors remain in eastern Aleppo, where an estimated 250,000 people have been under siege by government forces since early September. 

The MSF statement cited numbers from the east Aleppo health directorate, showing that from September 21 to 26, the few hospitals still functioning in the rebel-held part of the city received some 278 dead bodies, including at least 96 children.

More than 822 wounded were also taken in, including at least 221 children, it said.

All intensive care units are full. Patients have to wait for others to die so they can be moved to an available bed in intensive care, Abu Waseem, manager of an MSF-supported trauma hospital in east Aleppo, warned in the statement.

We only have three operating theatres and yesterday alone we had to do more than 20 major abdominal surgeries, he said, pointing out that hospital staff is working up to 20 hours a day. They cannot just go home and let people die.

MSF said it had last been able to deliver medical supplies to east Aleppo in August, and warned that the huge number of wounded was rapidly depleting the stocks in the remaining hospitals.

Now, with a complete siege on the city, attacks on humanitarian convoys and intensive bombing, we are powerless, Villalonga said, warning that if this intensity of bombing continues, there may not be a single hospital standing in a few days.

He demanded that the bombing stop, and that the sick and wounded be evacuated from the city.

Anything short of this is confirmation of what many are dreading, that the world has abandoned the people of Aleppo to a violent, agonising death, he said.

Fighting in Syrias besieged eastern Aleppo has killed 338 people in the past few weeks, including 106 children, and 846 have been wounded, including 261 children, a World Health Organization official said on Friday.

We are asking for four things: stop the killing, stop attacks on health care, let the sick and wounded out and let the aid in, Rick Brennan, WHOs head of emergency risk management and humanitarian response, told a U.N. briefing in Geneva.

The situation really is unfathomable.  

Assads regime and its key backer Russia are under growing pressure from world governments to halt a new offensive pounding rebel-held areas of Aleppo.

AS THE WORLD WATCHES IN HORROR, RUSSIA BEEFS UP ITS AIRFORCE IN SYRIA

Russia has reinforced its air base in Syria with several bombers and is ready to send ground attack aircraft as it intensifies support for Syrian government troops after the collapse of a ceasefire plan, Russias Izvestia daily reported on Friday.

A group of Su-24 and Su-34 frontline bombers have already arrived at the Hmeymim base, Izvestia wrote, quoting an unnamed military official. If need be, the air force group will be (further) built up within two to three days, he said.

Su-25 ground attack fighters designated to be sent to Hmeymim have already been selected in their units and their crews are on a stand-by, awaiting orders from their commanders. 

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday said there is no point pursuing further negotiations with Russia over Syria, leaving Washington without a backup plan and scrambling to develop new options to stop the mounting carnage.

As the U.S.-Russian ceasefire plan for Syria fell through, U.S. officials have told Reuters that President Barack Obamas administration had begun considering tougher responses - including military options - to the Russian-backed Syrian governments assault on Aleppo, the countrys largest city.

However, Russia said it would press ahead with the air war in support of the regime, warning that Washingtons refusal to work with Moscow on a settlement would be a gift to terrorists.

If Washingtons threats to halt cooperation become concrete decisions, then there is no longer any doubt that the rebels are under the White Houses protection and in the streets, terrorists will celebrate, Russian foreign ministry spokesman Maria Zakharova said.

Russia and the United States have traded blame for last weeks collapse of a ceasefire deal that would have marked the first step in a new effort to end the war that has killed 300,000 people since 2011.

An estimated 10,000 Syrian-led ground troops have amassed east of Aleppo on Friday, CNN reports, in what is believed to be preparation for a final ground assault on rebel-held areas.

More than 9,300 people have been killed in the Russian raids since September 30, 2015, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

The toll includes more than 2,700 jihadists from the Islamic State group and around 2,800 fighters from various rebel factions, the British-based monitor said.

At least 20,000 civilians have been wounded in the Russian raids, it said.

The Observatory -- which relies on a network of sources inside Syria for its information -- says it determines what planes carried out raids according to their type, location, flight patterns and the munitions involved.

Observatory director Rami Abdel Rahman said the death toll from Russian strikes could be even higher given the number of people killed by unidentified warplanes.

Moscow said on Thursday that it would press on with its bombing campaign in Syria, ignoring a threat by Washington to suspend its engagement over the conflict following escalating attacks on rebel-held parts of Aleppo.

Regime and Russian aircraft have carried out a barrage of strikes on east Aleppo since the Syrian government announced an offensive last week to retake all of the divided city. 

The bombardment has been some of the worst in Syrias five-year civil war, and follows the failure of a short-lived ceasefire brokered by Russia and the United States.

Moscow and Washington have traded blame for last weeks collapse of the ceasefire deal that would have marked the first step in a new effort to end the war that has killed 300,000 people since 2011.

US Secretary of State John Kerry admitted Thursday that months of diplomacy to end the war had hit a dead-end.

I think we are on the verge of suspending the discussion because, you know, its irrational in the context of the kind of bombing taking place, to be sitting there, trying to take things seriously, he said.

US President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel condemned what they called barbarous Russian and Syrian regime air strikes on Aleppo during a phone call, the White House said.

UN aid chief Stephen OBrien told the Security Council in New York that Aleppo is descending into a merciless abyss of a humanitarian catastrophe unlike any we have witnessed so far in Syria.

More than 100,000 children remain trapped in east Aleppo, he said.

Two of the largest hospitals in the citys east were bombed on Wednesday in what UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon described as a war crime.

Save the Children said that bunker-busting bombs meant it was too dangerous for children to return to even underground schools in Aleppo when classes resume this weekend.

The ferocious assault on Aleppo could deprive almost 100,000 school-age children of an education, said the charity, which supports 13 schools in the city, eight of them underground.
