One of the main hospitals in Syria's northern city of Aleppo has been forced to close indefinitely after being targeted by rockets and barrel bombs, according to Doctors Without Border.

The humanitarian group said on Monday the private Al-Sakhour hospital, serving around 400,000 people as one of the only hospitals in east Aleppo, suspended all activities after being bombed twice on two consecutive days last week.
