Aleppo, Syria

5116

An evacuated girl from the area of Fuaa and Kafraya in the Idlib province, looks out of a broken bus window during the evacuation of several thousand residents from the two pro-regime towns in northern Syria. As the buses passed through rebel-held territory, people threw rocks at them, which shattered the windows during the evacuation which put an end to one of the longest sieges of the country’s seven-year civil war. Fuaa and Kafraya were the last remaining areas under blockade in Syria and a rare example of pro-government towns surrounded by rebel forces.
