'Symbol of Aleppo' Boy's Picture Reappears: Family Claims Threatened by Rebels – Moscow

Remember the image of a Syrian boy from Aleppo who came to be known as the “symbol of Aleppo suffering”. He is Omran Daqneesh. In an interview with Omran Daqneesh’s father, Mohammad Kheir Daqneesh recently, he revealed that some White Helmets volunteers photographed Omran instead of offering immediate help and forced to go into hiding because of the threats. He has became a political pawn in Syria’s war.
The heart breaking photo show the boy covered in ashes after his house collapsed. Moscow has denied Western media reports of Russia’s alleged role in the strike. Activists hoped the photo would garner international support to help bring an end to the suffering and fighting in Syria.
Russian Defense Ministry’s spokesman Maj. Gen. Igor Konashenkov accused the media of committing a ‘moral crime’ their propaganda material.’
