For the past days, news channels and social media platforms have all been ablaze with the news of recent bombings in Aleppo, Syria. Omran, the child who was rescued from the rubble after Aleppo was hit by an airstrike, became the new face of the war’s adverse effects on humans. This time, a new video has surfaced – that of doctors performing an emergency C-section on a pregnant woman after she almost got killed by a barrel bomb.
The unidentified pregnant woman was one of the victims of the latest bombing in the war-torn town of Aleppo, Syria. Nine months pregnant, she was en route to the hospital when the airstrike hit.
Racing against time, doctors fought to save the life of the unborn child, who they fear was gravely injured due to Mayissa being struck by shrapnel in her belly. Mayissa was also barely holding on, with a broken leg and arm, and a steadily weakening pulse. Despite having only basic medical equipment and facilities, doctors and surgeons rallied to save the life of both the mother and her unborn child.

For the doctors, nothing was more beautiful than the sound of the newborn’s soft cries. They have, for today, achieved a small victory against war and death.
