On Tuesday, pro-government forces intensified their assault on the rebel-held suburbs of Syria’s capital, activists report. This comes a day after rebels beat back an attempted government advance, killing several soldiers.
Children in the Syrian war zone have had to see more violence in the past 6 months than most people would see in a lifetime. They are children of civilians and rebel forces that are caught in the crossfire between the rebels and the pro-government forces.
The images aboves give a heartbreaking face to the conflict that can sometimes feel far away.
Many of the photos show children being treated for injuries from bombs and airstrikes by the Assad government that targeted civilians and rebels. Many children have been seriously injured or have died in the attacks.
