This is the upsetting picture, which reminds all of us regarding the helpless victims, particularly kids, caught up in the middle of the Syrian conflict.
In a clip originating from the Syrian anti-government activist group Aleppo Media Center, the youngster sits in an ambulance covered in dust and blood, his feet dangling over the seat.
His name is Omran Daqneesh, 5, as stated by a source, and was pulled out of structure struck by an airstrike, in Aleppo, Syria.
He seems confused and dazed as he looks at his hand covered in the blood from his head. Daqneesh is shortly joined by two other kids who were as well pulled from the debris and then an older man.
A total of 5 kids, two young men, and one woman, were wounded in the explosion as stated by an Aleppo doctor who requested not to be identified, a source reported.
Omran and the others were rushed to the M10 hospital that has as well been struck continually by air strikes. Physicians treated his head injury, cleaned and him up and he was allegedly discharged later that night.
Physicians at the medical center stated that roughly twelve other kids all under the age of fifteen were treated.
Over 300,000 Syrians are estimated to have been killed in the country’s civil war whilst the precise number of civilians who have passed away in air strikes in Aleppo in current weeks is not known.
In a move, which may reverberate across the Middle East, Tehran said that Russia is using its territory to launch air strikes in the war-ravaged country even as a second wave of Moscow’s bombers flew out of Iran to strike targets in Syria.
The development represents a historical rapprochement with Russia, which may anger US-allied Gulf neighbors, strengthen Syrian president and affect the war against ISIS.
Russia first declared the strikes from close to the Iranian city of Hamedan, 173 miles southwest Tehran. Recently, Russia’s Defense Ministry stated another wave of warplanes fighter jets had departed from Iran, hitting targets in eastern Syria.
Head of the Iranian parliament’s national security and foreign policy committee, Alaeddin Boroujerdi, then gave the first government acknowledgment of the Russian operation. He stated the Russians were using the country’s Shahid Nojeh air base some 31 miles north of Hamedan, a remote base where Russian warplanes were observed landing in 2015.
Alaeddin stated the Russian Tu-22M3 bombers landed inside the Islamic Republic only to refuel under the authorization of the country’s Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, a move, which permitted them to carry a bigger bomb load of over twenty metric tons.
“There’s no stationing of the Russian armed forces in Iran,” Alaeddin added.
In Moscow, Sergey Lavrov, Russian Foreign Minister defended the use of Iranian military bases for airstrikes in the war-ravaged country, rejecting allegations that it could be a violation of U.N. resolutions prohibiting the transfer, sale and supply of combat aircraft to Iran.
In Washington, State Department spokesman Mark Toner stated Russia was “worsening what is now considered a highly dangerous scenario, with the use of Iranian air bases in order to execute more intense bombing runs, which keep hitting strike civilian populations.”
On Wednesday, presumed Syrian government or Russian air strikes on the rebel-held city of Idlib in the northwest killed seventeen people and injured at least thirty others, the Civil Defence branch for the province disclosed. Footage posted on the group’s website showed rescue personnel pulling bodies from wreckage along a massively destroyed street. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights as well reported the strikes, stating dozens of civilians were dead and injured. Also Wednesday, rebel rocket rounds slaughtered ten civilians and injured 9 in a government-controlled district of the city of Aleppo, Syria’s state-run SANA news agency stated.
For Iran, permitting Russia to launch strikes from inside the country will probably prove unpopular.
