In the latest viral heartbreaking photo out of Syria, a baby was born with shrapnel on her forehead.
On Sept. 18th a government sanctioned airstrike hit the building where a nine months pregnant woman named Amira was living with her three kids. She was hurt and bleeding from many parts of her body, including stomach.
The doctors performed an emergency laparotomy which is when they discovered the shocking shrapnel sticking in the child above her left eye.
Should the U.S. get involved to stop the violence? Sound off in the comments below.
(CNN)In war-torn Syria, a baby girl was a victim of the country’s civil war before she was even born.
The newborn is named Amel, or “Hope,” because of what she has survived in her first days of life in Aleppo. She came into this world bearing a scar of war on her forehead.
Her story is a tragic illustration of a human toll of a war that has claimed tens of thousands of lives and pushed millions of others to flee. As European leaders deal with an influx of migrants and refugees flowing through their borders, Amel’s story provides the explanation for why the mass migration is happening.
