As the battle for Aleppo comes to a close, with Syrian regime forces closing in on the last remaining pockets of resistance. The Assad regime has been found killing every man, woman, and child in sight in what the United Nations is calling a 'complete meltdown of humanity.'
With Russian bombs raining above them and government death squads going door to door to execute civilians, people are using what little time they have left to send out their final goodbyes to friends, family, and the world in case they don't make it out alive.
Bana Alabed, the 7-year-old girl whose family has been helping her run her Twitter account, reported that her father has been injured.
Video and photos from within the besieged areas have been uploaded by those trapped there between messages of futility.
I can tweet now but I might not do it forever. please save my daughter's life and others. this is a call from a father.— @Mr.Alhamdo (@Mr_Alhamdo) December 12, 2016
The messages I'm receiving from East Aleppo are all goodbyes. It's haunting, beyond words. Humanity is dead.— Joey Ayoub 🌹 (@joeyayoub) December 12, 2016
After viewing the harrowing messages and body counts, this is all that can be said.
To those who stayed to document Aleppo and now send final goodbyes: thank you. You did more than your part, we didn't do ours.— Osha Al-Mossallami (@Osha001) December 12, 2016
The Battle of Aleppo was a major military confrontation in Aleppo, the largest city in Syria, between the Syrian opposition, including the Free Syrian Army (FSA). The battle began on 19 July 2012, with a stalemate that had been in place for four years finally ending in July 2016, when Syrian government troops closed the rebels' last supply line into Aleppo with the support of Russian airstrikes.
