Recent reports emerging from Syria have begun to capture the heartbreaking everyday struggles of the besieged people of Aleppo.

 

And certainly one video in particular has proved nothing short of devastating. 

 

Taken in the aftermath of an air-raid on the city, it shows two bloodied and clearly traumatised toddlers being treated by medics. 

 

 

One of the children is desperately clinging to the nurse who is treating him, refusing to let go. 

 

The haunting moment was shared via the Washington DC-based humanitarian organisation, Sams.

 

Since the summer, the Syrian government has been trying to recapture the city's eastern half, a stronghold for rebels. 

 

 

Controversially, brutal Russian air strikes have more recently been targeting these areas - also killing thousands of civilians. 

 

Yesterday, the UN's Stephen O'Brien said of the crisis: "Indiscriminate bombing and shelling continues in a shocking and unrelenting manner, killing and maiming civilians, subjecting them to a level of savagery that no human should have to endure."
