WHAT DID YOU EAT FOR DINNER LAST NIGHT? THESE CHILDREN ATE NOTHING. THEN DIED. Damascus (Douma): Oct 11, 2013 - Qasem Barakat is 15 days old he was born into starvation and later died from it. He’s one of an increasing number of children in the suburbs of Damascus that are dying from malnutrition. There is no milk to feed him, so his parents had to watch him die like this.
Duaa Al Sheikh is 7 years old. She’s form Madamiyet, also in the suburbs of Damascus. She too died from malnutrition. Assad’s forces will not let anything into the suburbs, no food, no medicine, nothing. As the world cheers and congratulates themselves on “solving Syria” by destroying Assad’s chemical weapons, the cause of death and misery for the other 99% killed is still left, forgotten and unresolved.
