Have we forgotten the bloodied boy from Aleppo?
– It has been more than a year since the world meet Omran and the war in Syria threatens to become WWIII as some of the worlds strongest military powers play War Games (USA, Russia, France, UK, Turkey, Iran, Israel, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Syria . . .)
Immediately after Russia, Turkey and Syria’s ‘Demilitarization deal’.
MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia on Tuesday accused Israel of indirectly causing a Russian military plane to be shot down near Syria’s Mediterranean coast, and threatened to retaliate against Israel for what it described as a hostile act.
Russia’s Defence Ministry said the Il-20 reconnaissance aircraft, with 15 Russian service personnel on board, was brought down by anti-aircraft batteries of Moscow’s ally, Syria, in a friendly fire incident.
But the ministry said it held Israel responsible because, at the time of the incident, Israeli fighter jets were mounting air attacks on Syria targets and had only given Moscow one minute’s warning, putting the Russian aircraft in danger of being caught in the cross-fire.
“We view the actions of the Israeli military as hostile,” Russian Defence Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov told Russian state television. “As a result of the irresponsible actions of the Israeli military, 15 Russian service personnel perished.”
Choices for Syrian children
The boys name is Omran Daqnessh, he was lucky and suffered only a slight wound. Aylan Kurdi was not as lucky he drowned in the Mediterranean. More than 100 000 children have died in the 7 year long conflict in Syria from bombs from either sides, how many that have drowned in the Mediterranean we can only estimate.

An inside report from Dr. Mehmet Oz from refugee camps in Tyrkey and Syria
I had the opportunity to visit Syrian refugee camps along the Syria-Turkey border with the help of AFAD, the @IFRC, and @TurkKizilay. Despite the hardships the people we met have endured, their stories of resilience are inspiring – this is a trip that has forever changed me. pic.twitter.com/zDpgEwagIC
