5-year-old wounded Syrian child Omran Daqneesh sits alone in the back of the ambulance after he was injured during air strikes targeting Aleppo.
“A Syrian boy has died from wounds from the airstrike that turned his younger brother, Omran Daqneesh, into an internationally known symbol of the devastation in the war-ravaged city of Aleppo. Ali Daqneesh died Saturday from the injuries he sustained in the blast that hit the family’s apartment in their Qaterji neighborhood Wednesday, the group said. He was 10 years old, according to the Aleppo Media Center. The haunting photos of 5-year-old Omran were released by Syrian opposition activists earlier this week. In them, a dust-caked, bloodied Omran sits in an orange chair in an ambulance, his legs too short to reach the floor. Omran appears shell-shocked and weary.”
