ALEPPO — In the hospital’s reception area, after the latest government air raid, a little girl wailed. Nurses rushed back and forth among the onslaught of new patients. A boy, 11, quietly passed away on his hospital bed. His father wept. A nurse pushed through the crowd, blood splattered across her white uniform and headscarf. “The screaming! Always the screaming,” she said under her breath. “When will it end?” Welcome to an Aleppo hospital.
