WARNING: SOME PEOPLE MAY FIND THESE IMAGES DISTRESSING
In this time where information is readily available 24/7/365, images of war and suffering can begin to blur into one. We become desensitised to the pain of others. We’re all guilty of it in one form or another. However, this following video and the above image of a tiny Syrian boy who was pulled alive from a building after an airstrike is enough to challenge anyone’s perceptions of the horror that is currently going on in his home country.
Five-year-old Omran Daqneesh was named by Aleppo Media Centre, who also took the video.
He sits alone in an ambulance, not crying, the whereabouts of his parents unknown.
