A: Many hospitals have been hit, one of them being the Salam Hospital in Maarat Nouman and is now out of service completely. Most of the wounded and patients are moved to hospitals in the city of Idlib or hospitals near the border but this has caused increase pressure on those hospitals to be able to provide for them and their patients as well.
