Omran Daqneesh's brother Ali has died in Aleppo, reports say

It’s reported he died from internal bleeding and organ damage after the 17 August bombing.

OPPOSITION ACTIVISTS SAY the brother of a wounded Syrian boy who gained international attention has died.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said today that Ali Daqneesh, aged 10, has died from wounds sustained in the same airstrike that injured his brother in a rebel-held neighbourhood in Aleppo.

Syrian activists released haunting footage showing Omran Daqneesh, aged 5, rescued from a partially destroyed building in the aftermath of the airstrike late Wednesday in the northern city, which has seen heavy fighting in recent weeks. Omran was treated and later discharged.
