Clarissa Ward Aleppo

Clarissa reported the situation in Aleppo. She said that first she visited Aleppo in the summer of 2012 and she remember the drive towards the city, the closer you got to it the less power there was, and they drove along in a tense silence with this eerie darkness all around them.
But as you got closer you started to hear sounds, the sounds of shelling. At first a dull thud, then louder and louder.
Eventually they reached a place in the area surrounding Aleppo called Hraytan and by now the shelling was no longer a dull thud, it was artillery landing just a few hundred meters away from us.
They grabbed their gear and dove into the basement of the house where we were staying, where they were the guests of several Syrian families.

At around 2 am the shelling finally stopped and they crawled into bed, exhausted and then, just a few hours later at 5 am, the planes started buzzing overhead. It is really difficult to describe the pit that forms in your stomach when you hear those planes because you know something terrible is about to happen, but you have no idea where it’s going to happen.
You are paralyzed.
She looked around the room at the rest of her colleagues and my driver — a Syrian man from Tal Rifaat — Ayman, looked at her and they made eye contact and he kind of just shrugged: “Allahu A’lam” (only God knows).

And they both understood in that moment that they were absolutely powerless to protect themselves.
Moments later the room shook as the plane dropped a barrel bomb, and you heard the doctors talking about barrel bombs nearby.
The target in fact appeared to be a hospital, fortunately it had missed its target and hit a family home instead.
Later that day they drove into the city center and she was blown away by the scale of the destruction.
