Fear, Death, Survival: Just Another Day in Syria's Brutal Civil War
October 23, 2012
Fear and death continue to stalk the embattled Syrian city of Aleppo. An army jet swoops above, as locals try to go about their daily lives. Rebel fighters attempt to shoot the aircraft down, but after circling several times, it unleashes a burst of machine gun fire. Then an all-too familiar scene of the month-old conflict: children being hurried to a nearby hospital. The UN says the Assad regime has been deliberately targeting youngsters. One Aleppo surgeon says such shocking images have done nothing to spark the international community into action. "We have been living like for nearly two years. Nothing is being done," he said.
