Thousands of Syrians are fleeing from Aleppo

As the peace talks in Geneva were  suspended and the international donor community just met during a big conference in London, the attacks on civilians in Syria continue. Thousands of people fleeing the heavily bombed city of Aleppo towards the Turkish border.

„A huge military offensive this week severed the main rebel supply route into Syria’s second city of Aleppo in a move that could change the momentum in the five-year civil war. (…) This included attacks on hospitals and critical infrastructure, he said, and the target was ‘overwhelmingly civilians’, who had been forced to ‘desperately flee this aggression.'“

This is 110 km away from where I am sitting right now – in safe Gaziantep…this is intangible….
