Hundreds of Cutaneous Leishmaniasis Cases Showing up in Aleppo Daily

Street sweepers were one of FSA’s favorite victims from the start of the “revolution”. Even volunteers weren’t spared, just a couple of days ago FSA attacked a group of volunteers cleaning the streets of Aleppo and beat them up.

Now garbage is piling up and with it rodents, and bugs. Diseases and infections that we almost conquered prior to the “revolution” are coming back with vengeance. Results are showing as hundreds of cases of cutaneous leishmaniasis, also known as “Aleppo Boil”, are being discovered daily in Aleppo city alone.

Most of the cases are among children, but whole families got the infection that would leave its bearer scarred. The infection that needs 10-15 shots already exhausted the already small supply of medicine in Aleppo.

  1. Arsenic could be helpful in some form… does Syria have any?

    • Sure we have, we used to have a quite strong medicinal industry prior to the revolution… Problem is, some areas like Nubbol and AlZahraa, in Aleppo countryside, are besieged by FSA. Nothing coming in or out, they've already exhausted all of their medical supply.
