The rebel-held part of the city of Aleppo is currently under siege from Russian and Syrian government forces . and, according to the UN Special Envoy, faces total ruined ruin within the next two months. Before the war, Asmar Halabi ran two furniture shops in the city with his father, . These have been destroyed by the shelling. Now he runs an orphanage which is home to 50 children, many of whose parents have been killed in the bombardment. And it's not just the children who've lost relatives. , Asmar's own father and 3 three of his 4 four sisters have also been killed. On the line from Aleppo , he told me about the day in 2014 when an air strike hit the schools school where 2 two of his sisters and the women woman who is now his wife were studying.

There was an exhibition for paintings and drawings for children above the age of 13. , and it's it also was the end of the academic here. year and there was some sort of celebration. At that time the school was attacked by regime forces and the whole school was destroyed. I got the news at around 9: 30 in the morning. People called me and told me of the incident. I immediately rushed to the school. I was able to find one of my sisters, killed. The second one, I kept looking for her under the rubbles and ruins for 2 two to 3 three hours until I was able to find any traces of her, and I couldn't. And then eventually they told me that she is in the hospital and we found her there. She was killed in that strike.
