It was the shocking scene that jolted the world into caring once more about a forgotten war.
Two months ago, a Syrian cameraman captured harrowing footage of a five-year-old girl, Riham, trying to rescue her baby sister from their bombed home in Idlib.
Our hearts ached for the terrified father as he scrambled to his daughters’ aid, his face frozen in horror. We wept for little Riham as she reached for her sister dangling over the wreckage, her dress hooked on the debris.
And our hearts broke when we learned that Riham, her mother and another sister later died, further driving up the statistics of a bloody battle that has claimed more than 400,000 lives.
