SYRIAN GIRL’S TWEETS ABOUT WAR CAPTURE WORLD’S ATTENTION
DAMASCUS, Syria, – Bana Alabed, a seven-year-old Syrian girl, tweeting in English, with the help of her mother, has become the world’s focus on Monday, asking for pray and saying goodbye, reports China’s Xinhua news agency.
The latest tweets on her account says, “Under attack. Nowhere to go, every minute feels like death. Pray for us. Goodbye – Fatemah.”
Most tweets showed details of life in the war-torn city, using photos, videos or periscopes.
Media across the globe have paid close attention to the account. No verification about the tweets has been reported.
Bana’s mother, Fatemah, created the twitter account for her daughter in late Sept this year, to share their life in Aleppo to the world.
The Syrian army is already in control of over 60 percent of the rebel-held areas east of Aleppo, with over 30,000 civilians fleeing toward government-controlled areas.
The Syrian army says, it will press on with the operation until all rebel-held areas in eastern Aleppo are recaptured.
The rebels captured eastern Aleppo in 2012, and the government forces recently imposed a siege on that area before unleashing a broad offensive to recapture it.
Humanitarian organisations sounded the alarm about the situation of the 250,000 people living in eastern Aleppo, with the government promising to fix the situation of those relocated in government-controlled areas.
