Two surgeons succeeded in repairing the hand of a child after being severely injured by rebel mortar attack on the besieged town Al-Zahrah, nearly 20 km to the north of Aleppo.

The child’s hand was ripped off as his house was hit by a mortar shell fired by Islamic rebels besieging the town.

Al-Zahraa, along with Nubl, is Shia-inhabited villages to the north of Syria’s second largest city of Aleppo. The two towns have been besieged by the anti-government Free Syrian Army and later Jabhet Al-Nusra.

The town suffers acute shortage in medical supplies and other medications.

Since ever, the two villages were frequently bombed by mortars, homegrown missiles and artillery, killing scores of civilians and defenders.
