Syrian doctors smuggle in aid from Turkey

Group of Syrian doctors and volunteers smuggle much-needed medical supplies into Syria despite dangers.

The continuing violence inside Syria has made it difficult for those needing to reach proper medical care and treatment.

Supplies are running on empty in many clinics, which poses a challenge for medics hoping to treat those who have been wounded in the fighting.

Now a group of expatriate doctors and volunteers has teamed up to smuggle the much-needed aid in through Turkey.

But the volunteers say the Syrian government has attacked them in the past and confiscated the supplies, sometimes preventing the aid from reaching those who need it.
