Fighting escalates in Syria’s Deraa

June 26, 2017 1:47 pm

Deraa province is considered the starting point of the Syrian civil war.

It was where 15 children were imprisoned for scrawling anti-government graffiti, leading to a brutal government crackdown on demonstrations.

It largely escaped the devastation seen elsewhere for the past six years – until fighting escalated in the past four months.

Al Jazeera’s Natasha Ghoneim reports from Gaziantep in Turkey, near the Syrian border.
