Night from hell for doctors in Eastern Ghouta

The humanitarian situation in Eastern Ghouta grows more dire by the day, as Syrian forces close in on the rebel-held enclave. Medical facilities supported by Doctors Without Borders (MSF) have received over 1,000 dead and 4,800 wounded in just two weeks, the organization said in a statement. MSF's death count was last updated on Sunday, according to Wednesday's statement. Monitoring groups have reported scores killed daily this week as activists reported "apocalyptic" scenes in the streets of Eastern Ghouta, on the outskirts of the capital Damascus. CNN's Jomana Karadsheh has more.
