Every time the "Red Color" alarm sets off in the neighborhood, warning of a rocket sent from Gaza to the area, the couple have 15 seconds to hide in the shelter. A rocket crashed onto the house roof three weeks ago.

The people of Maarat al Numan comprise a city of 150,000 located strategically on Syria's main highway. Each dawn they leave the city to avoid airstrikes. Some do not escape the danger in time and hardworking neighbors try fervently to dig their bodies out of the rubble during the nighttime when the airstrikes pause.

Following months of routine shelling, the “liberated” Syrian town of Al Bab bands together in an attempt to grasp a bit of normalcy for their children. Since August, six schools have been shelled in Assad’s escalated aerial bombardment, and class has been moved to underground bunkers and basements, adapting to the times. Many parents fear sending their children to school, but now community members are volunteering their time in order to safely get the kids out of the house... and back to school.

Protesters burned tires and set up roadblocks around Lebanon Saturday, October 20, in an angry response to the massive car bomb that killed senior intelligence official Wissam al Hassan, who was allegedly leading an investigation into a Lebanese politician accused of working with two Syrian officials to plan a string of attacks inside Lebanon. The blast killed at least eight people and wounded over 100. Saturday was declared a day of mourning in the country, though protesters set up roadblocks in Beirut, Sidon, Tripoli and the Bekaa Valley. Many Lebanese worry that the explosion is evidence of an escalation of Syria's war spilling over the borders and fear a return to the wave of political assassinations that rattled Lebanon between 2005 and 2008.

The explosion, which took place at the busy Sassine Square, where the office of the anti-Assad Christian Kataeb Party is located, struck around 3 p.m damaged buildings and shattered windows over a radius of several blocks.
The incident occurred at a time of heightened tension between Lebanese factions and political parties on opposite sides of the Syria conflict. It is the first bombing in the Lebanese capital since 2008.

Azaz has seen brutal fighting in order to secure the northernmost crossing with Turkey. It's estimated that around 10,000 (some estimates touch as high as 17,000) refugees are currently trapped on the Syrian border, waiting to get into Turkey. Many refugees have been waiting there for up to three weeks, in squalid conditions. Refugees here can see the Turkish border from inside the disused transit stop where they are sleeping in the open.

The northernmost town of Azaz in Syria, is both a gateway and border point for refugees, fighters and supplies coming in and out of Syria, and a small town that tells a horrific story. On the 15th August 2012 the town was shelled by regime forces, leaving 50 dead. This followed weeks of fighting that allowed FSA fighters to take the town in order to allow the safe passage of many people into and out of Syria. The residents of the town are rebuilding, but fear another shelling attack that they fear is coming soon.
