ALEPPO, SYRIA: These vehicles look as if they were burned out years ago, but it was only a couple of nights ago. This damage done by 'rebels' took place in the Christian area (mixed residential and commercial) in Aleppo. The strategy is to make pressure on families to leave their homes, cities, and country.
The cars were shelled by the 'rebels' with cooking-gas cylinder bombs. They are targeting people in the markets, and children in schools. Around 40 civilians died, and 200 were injured in Aleppo in one week (back to school week). Other attacks took (and still taking) place in other cities, like Homs, Hasaka, and Damascus, by using vehicle bombs or/and shelling mortars.
The kids in the photograph were trying to take whatever they could find that was useful from the wreckage. I took advantage of the situation and shot my picture.
Those cooking-gas cylinder bombs are rained by terrorist 'rebels' upon the heads of civilians, blindly damaging and killing. The attacks are everywhere and against everyone, Muslim and Christian. The war unites the blood of Syrians of any religion against terrorism.
With the terrorists launching 20 bombs a day, up to 200 bombs, the results are way more damaging than the claimed "barrel bombs" allegedly dropped by the Syrian Airforce.
At least the Syrian Airforce is targeting terrorists and armed gangs, not civilians in their markets, schools, or homes.
Rumors about new Russian weapons (and forces) have reached several cities, including Aleppo. Although this brings hope, it will also probably mean more fighting and clashes in the coming 'Eid' official holiday.
