Omran, one child among millions taumatised by Syria war

Syria War News

BEIRUT: Haggard and covered in blood, little Omran’s blank stare shook the world. But across
war-torn Syria, thousands of children like him are traumatised by daily life under bombs and siege (Syria War News).

The footage of the shell-shocked four-year-old made headlines around the world and was
dubbed by Washington “the real face” of Syria’s five-year war.

The footage from activists at the Aleppo Media Centre shows Omran sitting quietly in
an ambulance, his bare, dust-covered feet barely reaching the edge of the orange chair.

He touches his forehead with his tiny hand and seems surprised to see blood on his
fingers — then wipes it off on the orange chair with the timidity of a child who feels he has done
something wrong.
