A Chicago surgeon puts his life on the line to save victims of Syria’s civil war in hospitals targeted by the regime.
Medical personnel like Dr. Samer Attar routinely risk life and limb as they fight to save victims of Syria’s civil war in hospitals bombed in the regime’s cruel campaign against civilians. More than 800 medical staffers have died in such attacks, which are considered war crimes. Dr. Attar, a Chicago-based orthopedic surgeon, volunteers for the Syrian-American Medical Society, which has supported over 400,000 surgeries during the 6-year conflict. Scott Pelley accompanies Dr. Samer on his fourth trip to the war zone for a 60 Minutes report to be broadcast Sunday, Nov. 26 at 7:30 p.m., ET and 7:00 p.m., PT.
