A 5-year-old Syr­ian boy by the name of Om­ran Daqneesh stirred up the world af­ter he was filmed and pho­tographed near a first aid kit with his skin cov­ered in blood and dust in the af­ter­math of an airstrike on Aleppo on Au­gust 19. Footage and pic­tures of the young boy went vi­ral on social me­dia as users rushed to share them un­der the hash­tag #Om­ran­daqneesh. Ac­knowl­edged by the New York Times as an ul­ti­mate sym­bol of Aleppo’s suf­fer­ing in the light of the on­go­ing Syr­ian con­flict, Daqneesh’s story made head­lines world­wide.
