An incendiary bomb attack on a school in Aleppo left 10 dead and dozens more severely burned Sunday.
Siham, a top student in her last year of school, suffered burns over 70 percent of her body and had to be transported to Turkey for critical medical care. She told BBC reporters she felt as if her whole body was burning.
“Please let it be over now”, she said. “We need to find a way out. We’ve had all we can take.”
Ahmed, a 13-year-old survivor who suffered burns over 40 percent of his body, asked reporters the inescapable question, “Why bomb us while we were at school? Why?”
