11 Jul 2014

Syrian children from the school of the parish of Qaa ar-Rim. Most of them just arrived fleeing the battles from northern Syria, and many have lost some of their relatives.
Recorded during January - Feb 2014 when the population of Qaa there were in critical moments surrounded by Syrian rebels attacking the towns of Hermel and Qaa firing rockets. Qaa is the first village on the Lebanese border and has been linked since the beginning of the war because of the proximity of several battles like Al-Qussair a year ago or Yabroud and Qalamoun when these images were recorded (see the map)

00,57الجيش السوري هو من آذاني وهو المسؤول عن تحطيم جسدي والتسبب بعدة كسور فيه ، لقد كسر لي أضلاعي الاربعة اضافة لكسر في الجمجمة وانقراص في العمود الفقري ، خرجت من الاعتقال وفي كل سنتيميتر من جسدي كسر.
الكسور هذه هل هي بفعل الجيش النظامي؟ نعم من الجيش هل تم اعتقالك من الطريق العام؟ لا . لقد تم اعتقالي على أحد حواجز الجيش.

1,25 سقوط البراميل المتفجرة على منزلنا جعلت طفلي بسبب الخوف بفقد النطق .
هل فقد السمع والنطق؟ بالنسبة للسمع فقد خف لديه كثيراً فهو يسمع لكن بشكل خفيف ، أما النطق فقد فقده تماماً

1,44 حالات الاغتصاب كثيرة فهي جرت في عدة قرى وليس فقط في قرية "صيده" ، عندنا في خلال عمليات الاقتحام كانوت يحضرون النساء والاطفال "الجيش النظامي" , احدى المرات جرى اشتباك بيننا على جسر "صيده" فوضعوا امامنا سبعة أطفال أمام الدبابة بعمر طفلي..هل وضعوهم كدروع بشرية ؟ نعم .
وقبل هذه الحادثة جرى بيننا اشتباك على طريق داعل فوضعوا أمامنا فتاتين عاريتين ، فأدرنا ظهورنا وانسحبنا للخلف، لقد انسحبنا.
