Heartbreak over #Aleppo shared across social media

14 December 2016, 14:35

Beirut - Civilians from East Aleppo have sent out final messages declaring that “it’s the last days” and “there is no minute to spare”, while those watching in shared their messages on social media.

The videos surfaced while the Syrian city continues to be under an intense bombing climate and thousands of civilians are said to have been trapped within the eastern perimeter.


After the announcement declaring a cease-fire deal on Tuesday thousands of people have fled Aleppo within the last 48 hours. 

Effective evacuation of people within eastern Aleppo have been refused by Russians and President Bashar Assad's forces have continued to close in. 

Samantha Power, Ambassador of the UN has criticised the Russian, Syrians and Iranian government for their responsibility, asking "Is there no execution of a child that gets under your skin?"  

Powers continued to share her concerns on Twitter.

Most of the concern on social media is shown towards those who have lost their lives in mass killings that have taken place in the largest Syrian city.

People have showed their support on social media towards the liberation of Aleppo and awarenes continues to be created around the current situation.
