Seven-Year-Old Syrian Tweets 'Goodbye' After Her Home Is Bombed

In October, the USA suspended bilateral talks on Syria with Russia after the bombing of humanitarian aide convoy headed to the city by Syrian or Russian jets.

"Tonight we have no house, it's bombed & I got in rubble".

Fatemah, the mother of 7-year-old Bana Alabed, captured global attention when she began tweeting her daughter's messages from devastated city in September.

She and her mum Fatemah have been livetweeting from Aleppo, where rebel controlled areas are under heavy bombardment from government forces. "In between death and life now, please keep praying for us", Bana said in a tweet.

Seven year old Bana Alabed put the video onto her Twitter page along with other stills of her life in the devastated Syrian city.

Her mother, Fatemah, manages her Twitter account.

"#Aleppo". The Syrian army and its allies on Monday announced the capture of a swathe of eastern Aleppo from rebels in an accelerating attack that threatens to crush the opposition in its most important urban stronghold.

According to CNN, Fatemah has said that her three children were not injured and have found shelter in a neighboring house.

Last week, author J.K. Rowling responded to one of Bana's tweets about her love for the Harry Potter books.

Rowling, who sent Alabed e-book versions of her blockbuster series, retweeted the child's tweets and went on to offer ways in which people can help those in need as the country is ravaged by war.

Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad has launched a huge offensive to take back control of the city, and the war is even heavier now than it was before.

The woman, along with her 7-year-old daughter Bana, had attracted global attention in recent months for using the social media platform to document the daily struggles of a family living in Aleppo.

"She wants to but we don't have it here".

The day after receiving the books she tweeted that her friend had been killed in the bombings.
