Aleppo: The Last Goodbyes Of Those Still Alive
The battle for Aleppo closes with moving goodbyes
The long battle for Aleppo, the besieged city in Syria, is coming to an end with thousands of innocent people trapped under constant bombing and strong military activity from pro-Assad forces on the ground. As this battle comes to an end, some Syrians have been spreading their final goodbyes on social media—hoping to receive some help, even if it comes now in the end.
“Humans all over the world, don’t sleep! You can do something, protest now! Stop the genocide.”

Providing updates on those who raised their voices these past days has been an impossible task, as the situation for the people in Aleppo remains unclear. Although in the case of Lina, she has tweeted again today.

“We are tired of talking, we are tired of speeches. No one listens, no one responds. Here comes the barrel bomb. This is the video’s ending.”
Even the International Committee for the Red Cross (ICRC) issued a plea to all sides to spare civilians:
“As the battle reaches new peaks and the area is plunged into chaos, thousands with no part in the violence have literally nowhere safe to run.”
These messages starting appearing on social media as a ceasefire deal was agreed on Tuesday between Turkey and Russia, in order to evacuate rebel fighters exclusively since Russian envoy Vitaly Churkin said about civilians:
“The agreement is for the fighters to leave. The civilians, they can stay, they can go to safe places, they can take advantage of the humanitarian arrangements that are on the ground.”
In any case, the deal utterly collapsed in less than 24 hours, and we still do not have many news from those who, until yesterday, were still alive.
