Celebrate Aleppo’s freedom!

Aleppo celebrates
Aleppo celebrates

The final stage of purging al-Qaeda and Free Syrian Army from Aleppo was completed early this morning. Syrians are celebrating in the streets, and church bells rang all last night and today.

Please celebrate with me by watching this short video.


I lost seven people who were very close to me, two were children, in the battle for Aleppo. I will miss them dearly, and forever. But Aleppo has been purged, and I am sure they are smiling down on Aleppo tonight.

Merry Christmas everyone!
