These photos are online as the battle of Aleppo is lost by the rebels, under the bombings of the Red Army and the assaults of the Bachar al-Assad's army. We hear about executions in the ruins of the city, of a possible evacuation corridor for the civilians to East Aleppo, a zone under the control of the loyalist army, where the inhabitants of West Aleppo do not want to go, fearing reprisals.
I remember a bustling, active, smiling and living city. I know that lots of people I met took part in the fight, fled the city, stayed hidden or just died. I know I will never see them again.
There was a city named Aleppo...
