This heartbreaking picture shows the body of a mother killed in an airstrike cradling her dead baby next to the body of her young son. The bodies can be seen covered in blood and dust after they were buried in rubble during an aerial bombardment in the Syrian city of Aleppo.
Rescuers found the body of the mother with her arms still wrapped around her baby. The body of the woman's young son was lying next to them.
According to Mirror UK, the city has been decimated by more than 600 airstrikes since an announcement of a major offensive by the Syrian government on Thursday.
In harrowing scenes yesterday, one five-year-old girl was pulled from the wreckage of a building by her ponytail while screaming in fear. Little Rawan Alowsh was the only survivor of a blast which killed her mother, father and four siblings.
Just hours later a baby was uncovered by rescuers frantically digging through concrete and soil. The tiny child was lifted from the ground and rushed to hospital as the search for survivors becomes increasingly desperate.
