Ahmad, a young boy from Kafr Awayid of Idlib, lost 9 of his family members by way of a TNT barrel.
Here’s a rough translation of what he is saying:
Before entering the tent: Our lives here are not good. We drink dirty water, we tread in mud, look at our tents, there is no bathrooms.
In the tent: When I remember my mom how she use to bathe us, and comb our hair, and we’d go to the graveyard. I remember when the mosques would make athans (call to prayer), and we’d go there to pray. There is nothing left. We’re stranded, homeless. We used to wake up early, shower, and wear new clothes. And now I wake up and remember my mom, I remember my mom when she used to wake me up on Eid morning and comb my hair to let me go out and play with my friends. There is no one here to comb my hair and send me off to play with my friends. He [Assad] made us homeless. May God make him homeless and kill his children like he killed ours. And the countries…the countries that send him [Assad] weapons and the other countries that do nothing but remain silent. They don’t send us [opposition] anything. Russia sends Assad warplanes so he can drop TNT barrels****** on us *(KEEP IN MIND THIS IS HOW HIS FAMILY WAS MURDERED). The Arab countries do nothing but remain silent. Our souls are leaving (i.e. we are dying), get up, help us, bury us. When a TNT barrel falls on a home, and the entire family is killed, no one is there to bury that family because there is no one left in the village anymore.
