Syrian boy shows the destruction of his house in Eastern Ghouta


On inspecting the destruction left behind by of a series of missile strikes around one month ago, staff come across a young boy trying to salvage his family’s belongings from the site where his house used to stand. Since then, thousands of families trapped in Eastern Ghouta have been left fearing for their lives, as unprecedented levels of bombing and shelling have pounded the opposition-held region.

In some parts of Eastern Ghouta the destruction is now even greater than at the height of the Aleppo crisis in 2016, yet with only a tiny fraction of the global attention and outrage.
