A seven-year-old girl who has been documenting the daily battle of life in besieged Aleppo has spoken to ITV News to reveal how the conflict is seen through a child's eyes.
With the help of her mother, Bana al-Abed has been tweeting to show the terror and destruction the trapped residents have to face on a regular basis.
In an interview with ITV News, she has now pleaded with the world to "listen to us", saying "we are children, we have a right to live".
She said: "We are not terrorists."
Bana's family - her mother Fatemah, aged 26, and her two younger brothers - are among thousands of citizens held inside the rebel-held city as it continues to be bombarded by Syrian government troops and their Russian allies.
She said: "I’m afraid of war planes and shells, they kill us. We are children.
"Children are dying here, in their schools and homes. Even in hospitals there aren't any medicines for children and the injured."
She added: "Yesterday bombs fell. One here at my home and one at my grandma's house".
Her mother has insisted their tweets are only used as a way to explain the horrors of Aleppo - which has robbed her children of a normal childhood - instead of being used for propaganda, and appealed for the world to notice.
Fatemah said: "I hope the world [notice] our kids like their kids - they deserve a life."
