Girl Who Tweeted From Aleppo Just Posted A Chilling Goodbye Tweet

A Syrian girl, who shared the horrors of living in Aleppo, narrowly escaped death as Syrian government forces battle to take control of the city.

Aleppo Girl

Since September, Bana Alabed with the help of her mother, Fatemah, has been using Twitter to reveal what it’s like to live inside the besieged walls of Aleppo, Syria.

The little girl has shared photos and videos of bombs falling, destroyed buildings and dead friends and as heavy bombardment devastated the place, her tweets have become even more desperate. So much so that on Sunday, Bana sent out a terror-filled tweet to her 94,000 followers, wondering if she would live to see another day, after Bashar al-Assad’s troops made their way deeper into Aleppo.


It was accompanied by another chilling tweet by her mother.


Fortunately, the little girl’s family survived the night and lived to tell the tale — however, their house was completely demolished after a fresh onslaught of drone attacks and ground battle.

Her latest tweet is accompanied by a picture of her covered in dust from the rubble of her home and surrounded by smoke.


The plight of the brave girl has grabbed the attention of Harry Potter author, J.K. Rowling, who sent the girl e-book links to the book series just last week.

Around 250,000 residents have their suffering exacerbated from serious food shortage and lack of fuel in the city.

Since Nov. 15, attacks in Aleppo have killed at least 212 civilians, including 27 children, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
