With the end of the conflict nowhere in sight, a British report points to new levels of depravity as part of the battles tearing Syria apart – bored snipers have begun taking practice shots at pregnant women, specifically aiming for their unborn fetuses.
The testimony of a British doctor who spoke with ITV claims that snipers have been engaging in a “death game” in which they target specific body parts of innocent civilians as target practice.
The doctor, David Nott, said that he began noticing the phenomenon after identifying certain trends in the victims he was treating: “One day we’d have pregnant women being brought in with gunshot wounds to the uterus. Not just one or two, but seven or eight, which meant to me they (the snipers) must be targeting pregnant women.
“And the following day, we would get people coming in with chest wounds to the right side of the chest. The next day it would be the left side and no other injuries. Then it would be groin… so it seemed to me that there was a death game going on with the snipers,” Dr. Nott said.
