DR. IBRAHIM NAHEL OTHMAN
Yesterday Dr. Ibrahim Nahel Othman was assassinated by Assad regime as he was fleeing to the Turkish border. Ibrahim was a great, courageous, caring and proud Syrian. Just 27, Ibrahim was training to be an orthopedist. Shocked and appalled that victims would be to afraid to come to hospitals and clinics when they were injured, hospitals and private clinics have been raided by the regime, and many injured victims and orthopedists have been taken and killed. Some 700 physicians are missing as of today. Ibrahim couldn't sit back and do nothing and along with fellow physicians started up the Damascus Physicians Coordinating Committee. He was a key member in setting up many secret field clinics, not just in Dasmascus but also in surrounding cities like Hama and Homs. For this reason he was wanted and killed. Another example of how corrupt the Assad regime is. Another powerful and strong innocents man's life taken.
Rest in peace Ibrahim Nahel Othman
