Wages of war
Five-year-old Omran Daqneesh, with bloodied face, sits with his sister inside an ambulance after they were rescued following an airstrike in the rebel-held al-Qaterji neighborhood of Aleppo, Syria on Wednesday. A video of Daqneesh sparked outrage and concern on social media on Thursday. Rebel-held areas suffer heavy air strikes daily as pro-government forces try to retake territory lost to rebels two weeks ago in the southwest of Aleppo. The United Nations special envoy for Syria said on Thursday he would work with Russia to iron out details of a planned 48-hour humanitarian ceasefire in Aleppo, in order to deliver aid quickly to civilians.
