Syrian boy who is now the face of war in Syria loses brother to wounds



Five-year-old Syrian boy, Omran Daqneesh, who elicited global pity after he was pictured at the back of an ambulance when pulled from the rubble after airstrikes hit their home, has lost his elder brother in Aleppo from wounds sustained in the same incident.
Ali Daqneesh, 10, was wounded in Wednesday’s air strike, according to U.K.-based monitoring group the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
He was martyred while in hospital as a result of the same bombardment that their house was subjected to,” said Besher Hawi, the spokesman for the local council of Aleppo.
He had internal bleeding and organ damage, doctors told the spokesman.
