In all the reports, images and videos of death and destruction that keep coming out of Syria, it's the horrific images of children impacted by the turmoil that are the most resonant. In September of last year, it was the heartbreaking photo of young Alan Kurdi washing up on the shore near Turkey. In July, organisations began tweeting images of children suffering the brunt of the Syrian crisis holding pictures of Pokémon figures to show that they needed to be rescued.

The video above, which shows scenes from the aftermath of an air strike on a building in Aleppo, is hard to watch. But this is the world we live in. Bloodied children and adults caked in dust can be seen emerging from the building. The image of five-year-old Omran Daqneesh looking dazed, with a face half covered in blood, that has gone viral and has given a face to how bad the situation has become in Syria.

The BBC reported that fighting between the Syrian Government forces backed by Russia and rebels has created a warlike situation in the city and has left hundreds dead.
