Syrian rebels film a Russian airstrike on their own position in northern Aleppo. The cameraman survives, but as he goes to inspect the the extent of the damage, he discovers that a few of his insurgent buddies weren’t so lucky.

The massive Russian bombardment and heavy fighting is continuing to push tens of thousands of refugees from their homes.
