Syrian Voices: Alia

Syrian Voices: with Lyse Doucet

In this series of interviews, five Syrians discuss the situation in which they find themselves.

Alia lives in a rural area which is in the hands of rebel forces. Her son joined up to fight the regime, but was killed. His body was brought back to the village. “Even though he had died twelve hours earlier, he was still bleeding,” she says, “that is how I know he was a martyr.”
