Heartbreaking Photos Of 5-Year-Old Boy Dazed & Bloodied After Airstrike Highlights Horror Of Syria's Civil War

This dazed and bloodied little boy, pictured in the back of an ambulance after surviving an airstrike in Syrian city of Aleppo, has become a symbol of the horror of the country's civil war.

Five-year-old Omran Daqneesh was one of five children injured during a military strike yesterday.

The humbling image shows him covered head-to-toe with dust and staring long into the distance, seemingly so disorientated he is barely aware of the terror around him.

Footage shows him eventually discovering he is bleeding as he tries to wipe the dust from his face, but he continues to patiently wait for medics to treat him.

The images of little Omran have gone viral after being shared on social media yesterday as diplomatic figures call for a ceasefire.
