NEW YORK (AP) — A Nobel Peace Prize-winning medical group says Syria's health system has been shattered during the more than two-year conflict and that their organization plans to nearly double their presence in the country.
Members of Medecins Sans Frontieres told a briefing Thursday that they were forced to work inside private homes and even in a cave, as the group has yet to receive government permission to work inside the country.
The official death toll has been estimated at more than 70,000, but the group said the actual toll appears to be much higher.
The group, also known as Doctors Without Borders, said it was struck by the absence of other aid groups working Syria.
