Remember little Omar Daqneesh? The little blood and dust covered boy from Aleppo who became the chilling symbol of the suffering of children in Syria?

The picture of 5 year old Omar in the back of an ambulance with blood and dust caking his face after an airstrike was beamed around the world last August. Omar's 10 year old brother, Ali, died in the blast.

The new photos come from an interview with journalist Kinana Allouche, who works for Al-Mayadeen, a Lebanese television station supportive of the Assad regime.

Allouche is a pro-regime journalist, who last year sparked outrage when she posted a selfie of herself with the bodies of dead rebel fighters.
