We are writing again out of deep concern how our (your) profession is prevented or penalized for carrying out their humanitarian duties in Syria.
We understand that some fifty four medical personnel (nurses, doctors, and medical students) have already been killed by your security forces.
As fellow medical professionals we raise our voices to demand an end to your forces' murderous activities, stat.
Dr. Assad, you are besmirching the honour of the medical profession, whose basic humanitarian values you swore to uphold.
