Shot this video over two weeks in August when war had just crashed into Aleppo. Already, the deadly front lines had formed in Salahaddin neighborhood facing Syrian Army positions in Hamdania across the street. Tank shells pounded the rebels hunkered in abandoned apartments. Later a group of fighters rolled in the neighborhood of Izaa and began a night attack on a TV station occupied by regime forces. The fight for Izaa is still ongoing as of November. The neighborhood is completely destroyed. The regime refuses to let it go as it strategically overlooks most of Aleppo.
One day an air strike in the neighborhood of Bustan al Qasr collapsed the roof of a family apartment. I interviewed a brother trying to find the bodies of his nieces and nephews who lived upstairs. There were seven dead from the Querea family- a 15 year old son, an 8 year old daughter, 8 year old cousin and a one year old baby boy. All killed when a fighter jet dropped a bomb on their apartment.
