The mother of a seven-year-old girl who tweeted about living conditions under the Syrian regime has spoken of her relief to finally reach safety.
Bana al-Abed attracted over 300,000 Twitter followers by providing harrowing updates on her living conditions and near-death experiences when she was growing up in besieged eastern Aleppo.
On Sunday, Bana and her mother Fatemah were some of 12,000 people to be evacuated as part of a deal to return the city to government control.
Holding her arm around her daughter, Fatemah told the activist-run Qasioun News at her relief at leaving, but also the regret of being forced out of her home city and living as a refugee.
We created our Twitter [account] to tell all the world what is happening there [in eastern Aleppo].
We are happy because our voice reached all the world. We are free.
We are feeling - I am sad because I leave my country, I left my soul there. I want to take our freedom there, not to be like a refugee in other countries. I want for my kids a good future. But this is the matter here.
They make us leave our country. We can't stay there because there is a lot of bombs and no clean water, no medicine.
They even targeted hospitals and schools. When we get out, we had a lot of suffering, because we stayed almost 24 hours in a bus without water and food and anything.
We stayed like prisoners, a hostage.
Finally, we arrived here and we thank God and we thank all our friends who have supported us.
Tens of thousands of civilians desperate to leave Aleppo were left stranded for 48 hours over the weekend after a ceasefire deal broke down.
