"This family has been living in utter misery for close to 3 years. They survived everything Assad threw at them. From gas attacks, to daily shelling, to murderous raids and of course now, the starvation. Yet today, their luck ran out.
In the suburbs of Damascus some may call this family “lucky”. They all had their heads blown off together. The parents did not have to watch their child die. The boy did not have to become an orphan and starve. Welcome to Syria. The way Assad always wanted it to be."
