This is the heartbreaking image that reminds us all about the innocent victims, especially children, caught up in the middle of the Syrian war.
In a video provided by the Syrian anti-government activist group Aleppo Media Center (AMC), the boy sits in an ambulance covered in blood and dust, his feet dangling over the chair. He is five-year-old Omran Daqneesh, according to London’s Telegraph, and was pulled out of a building hit by an air strike, in Aleppo, Syria. He appears dazed and confused as he looks at his hand covered in the blood from his head. He is soon joined by two other children who were also pulled from rubble and then an older man.
A total of five children, one woman and two young men were injured in the blast according to an Aleppo doctor who asked not to be identified, The Telegraph reported. Daqneesh and the others were taken to the M10 hospital, which has also been hit repeatedly by air strikes. Doctors treated his head injury, cleaned him up and he was reportedly released later that night. Doctors at the hospital said that around 12 other children all under the age of 15 were treated. (AP)
