(CNN)“Aleppo is being destroyed by the silence of Arabs and the entire world.”

The phrase speaks volumes about the massacre unfolding in war-ravaged Aleppo while the world watches helplessly. The quote is translated from one of the top Twitter worldwide trends, #حلب_تباد_بسكوت_العرب_والعالم.
Powerful messages accompanied the hashtag along with images of injured and dead children, sending a message that can’t be overlooked: The people dying in Syria are real. We cannot ignore them.
Or as one woman said, “We can’t say we didn’t know.”
Syria’s Civil Defense volunteer rescue group, who call themselves the White Helmets, painted a dire picture of the situation:
“We hear children crying, we hear calls for help, but we just can’t do anything. We’re being bombed continuously.”

Humanitarian groups outlined the moral imperative to help the victims of Aleppo, especially the children.

Amnesty International said the bloodshed in Aleppo may be “war crimes.”
Some Syrians posted “goodbye” messages from eastern Aleppo on Tuesday morning as government forces closed in on the last remaining pockets of the shrinking rebel-held area.
Bana Alabed, the young Syrian girl who has captured global attention with her tweets from Aleppo, has shared several messages this week saying each one was her last. On Tuesday, she posted yet another — this time with even more finality.

“My name is Bana, I’m 7 years old. I am talking to the world now live from East #Aleppo. This is my last moment to either live or die,” Alabed wrote on Twitter.

Sound and Picture organization: We are a group of Syrian human rights activists. We noticed the lack of bodies which document abuses against civilians inside Syria, therefore we decided to establish this project, it is specialized to document the violations which have committed by all sides in the ongoing conflict in Syria against civilians in a professional way. The organization is documenting all kinds of violations, and working on the accounting for the groups which committed these violations by the international community. The organization is completely independent, and does not follow any political or military bodies, whether inside or outside Syria.
