At Home in Aleppo

Email a Friend

Aleppo was Syria’s largest city. Now it is under near-constant aerial bombardment from Syrian and Russian planes, with no effort to spare civilians. The New Yorker's Adam Davidson speaks with Omar Dawood, who once worked in a paint factory but now helps the injured survivors of the bombings. Dawood might try to send his wife and children out of Aleppo, but he doesn’t expect to survive himself. Even after the destruction of the top floors of his workplace in an air strike, he says he will never leave.
