The conflict in Syria is getting closer and closer to an all-out international conflict, and new shocking footage shows the aftermath of what BBC is calling a “napalm-like” incendiary bomb that struck a school.
The bomb left at least ten people dead, and countless others with burns that had them moving “like the walking dead.”
Witnesses say a fighter jet repeatedly flew overhead as if it were choosing its target, finally settling on the school.
This comes after the United States government saying the attack on August 21, which left over 1,400 dead, was most certainly composed of chemical weapons.
The insanity of these attacks has the international community up in arms, and the people of Syria are in desperate need of help.
“This was the most horrific thing,” said the headmaster of the school. “We have seen images on TV, we have heard many stories, but we have never seen anything like this before.
“The worst thing in life is watching someone die right in front of you and you can’t do anything.
“There were dead people, people burning and people running away, but where to? Where would they go? It is not safe anywhere. That is the fate of the Syrian people.”
A witness of the attack, Mohammed Abdullatif, has a message for the United Nations:
“Dear United Nations, you are calling peace, you are calling for peace. What kind of peace are you calling for?
“Don’t you see this, don’t you see this? What do you need to see?
“We are just human beings, we want to live. It is our right to live,” he said.
While the United States gets accused of interfering in international affairs it has no place in, at what point does it become a universal matter of saving humanity? Should we just sit on the sidelines and let these horrific events continue, or should we take action?
Check out the video of the aftermath below, but beware, it is extremely graphic.
