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. โ€œEven though he had died twelve hours earlier, he was still bleeding,โ€ she says, โ€œthat is how I know he was a martyr.โ€
