An Infant in a bag… Eastern Ghouta is emptied from its people
The photo of a Syrian infant sleeping in her father’s travel bag has become a face that shortens the tragic situation in the Eastern Ghouta, that witnesses one of the worst attacks, after the photo has spread widely.
For the first time since the regime launched its attack on Ghouta about a month ago, thousands of people are fleeing, carrying their children and belongings, on foot to get out of their areas.
The photo of the baby in a”travel bag” reflects the displacement of the Eastern Ghouta, where thousands of civilians continue to flee as the regime advances to the besieged areas.
The Reuters photographer photographed the picture at the Bayt Sawa crossing in the Eastern Ghouta, where hundreds of civilians are getting out.
