The boy runs towards the car in the sharp shooting. It appears as if he got shot but later dodged the fire and dives to the ground, takes a cover in the car’s shelter holds the girl’s hand and run for a cover together. Both got saved. The video uploaded on YouTube on the 10th November has received over 1.2 million. Viewers expressed their anguish through comments: –
– The perpetrator of those who are shooting, do not know what they are doing.
– Civil war in Syria is now over three years old now. No one can guess how long this will last. Millions of women and children are affected. The international community has to take a serious view of the happenings there. Shooting on the children is showing cowardice in essence.
