The ongoing Syrian civil war is affecting the lives of children across the country, a recent video posted on social media sites shows.
In the video, a Syrian child provides an analysis of the political situation by telling a man, thought to be her father, how conditions in the country are unsafe.
Throughout her dialogue, the girl speaks about the fear of being killed and the possibility of having to leave their household goods behind if they are forced to leave.
At the end, she sums up the situation by saying: “If we fall down, we can’t get up.”
