Aleppo, Syria, Feb. 21, 2020. Demonstrators raise banners in the al-Bab city, eastern Aleppo, Northern Syria, denouncing the military operation by the Syrian government forces and Russia. The demonstrators also express support to a military campaign against the Syrian government forces by the Turkish Army and the Free Syrian Army. The Syrian government forces and their allied militias, supported by Russia, are launching a ground attack on the southern and western Aleppo countryside, and the southern and eastern Idlib countryside. During this attack, the Syrian government forces gained control of dozens of villages and towns in the area, after intensified bombings. The bombings killed and injured hundreds of civilians and forced hundreds of thousands to displace. Photo by: Obayda Baaj.
