Syria's Schools under Attack

Mar 20, 2021 on BBC One at 8:30 PM


Thousands of schools have been totally or partially destroyed during the Syrian conflict, which began ten years ago this month. Iqra School in Aleppo was one of those schools, bombed by a fighter jet in 2013. Some pupils were killed immediately and ... (more)more died of horrific injuries soon after. A BBC Panorama team were filming in a children's hospital nearby and captured the desperate attempts to save lives after the attack. Supporters of the Syrian regime falsely claimed that these scenes had been faked. Eight years later, Panorama has met with survivors and relatives of the dead to discover how profoundly their lives have changed as a result of that day.
