This one man represents the tragedy of war, of innocent lives lost.

I read this article today and thought to myself who was this clown of Aleppo?

I searched and struggled to find anything on him, except his death.

Isn't that normally the way with people who do selfless deeds ?

Yes of course, how cynical of me.

War is truly tragic. May he rest in peace.

lets review:
he refused to leave a war zone
he was living in enemy territory
but it was the Russians and assad that killed him.

I would say there is some misplaced blame going on here.

You may have a point as there seems to be personalities being created to fuel the western MSM meme of assaud must go and that a no fly zone should be implemented bY the US-NATO so they can have the Libya experience . Not saying this Clown is not real but he may be just another of others before him . This piece over at 21st century wire is well worth the read and consideration .

First there was the Gay Girl of Damascus, back in 2011, and now we have @AlabedBana tweeting from Aleppo. The Bana story all began in September of 2016 when 7 year old Bana began to tweet from eastern Aleppo to share with the world her anxiety about living in a war-torn city. It is perhaps a sad reflection of the world we live in that her arrival on the social media scene provoked a certain amount of scepticism, hilarity even. It seems only fair to endeavour to consider the Bana case objectively.

There is blame on both sides , this story here isn't about who's to blame for his death rather it's about a man who attempted to help the youngest victims of the war by giving them something else to think about other than impending death , he did what he felt he needed to do and paid the price.
It's easy to criticise from a position of safety and comfort.

Think these news snippets are created to create a human feel to the conflict in which it becomes our moral duty to act. Very similar theme to the Cat man stroy of Aleppo who looked after all the cats or the Gardener of Aleppo who kept growing flowers until he was bombed.

None the less a nice story

Death has come, war brings horror. This man stood in the face of horror to bring a smile to a few, may God show mercy, I'd raise my glass in his honor!
