From the album Syria from both sides

One of the officers of the Free Syrian Army sits with his family in their home in Khadeiya. He is unusual for keeping his family in the middle of the bullet riddled neighborhood. But he is too well know as a member of the opposition and as he says "I prefer my children die beside me than apart from me". He used to be an officer in the Syrian Army until, but his brother was shot while returning home from the first protest in Khaldi and he immediately decided to defect and support the opposition.
