. Syrians are watching in horror as Putin deploys the Aleppo playbook in Ukraine « JO LEE MAGAZINE

CNN – Abdel Kafi al-Hamdo cannot get Ukraine out of his mind. The 36-year-old Syrian spends his days following the news, tweeting messages of solidarity and teaching his five-year-old daughter Lamar how to draw the Ukrainian flag. He says few can understand what Ukrainians are going through as unimaginable images of war, death and suffering are transmitted around the world.

“No one can understand Ukrainians,” Hamdo told CNN. “No one in the world can understand them more than Syrians.”
For English teacher Hamdo, watching Russia’s war on Ukraine has brought back memories of the darkest days of his life — the siege of his city, Aleppo, in 2016.
