First video of Aleppo boy since 2016 bombing emerges

The boy whose bloodied and shell-shocked face broke the hearts of the world is now happy and thriving, according to new footage. Omran Daqneesh was filmed in the back of an ambulance covered in blood and dust following an Aleppo airstrike in August last year.

The airstrike from the Assad regime killed his brother and destroyed his home. Omran would quickly become the face of the suffering civilians stuck in Aleppo, under control of the Free Syrian Army and besieged by Assad loyalists as well as Islamic State.
