"Worn out, and soul of dust, you twist and turn amid the piled sandbags to escape the never ending snipers. How long does it take?, you ask, your nerves crumbling, how far is it? - and only now you do understand this war; when in the middle of nowhere, Alaa says: It's here. Because of the ancient souk of Aleppo, the most charming 4,000 sqm of the Middle East, the most famous postcard of Syria, a vertigo of voices, and tales colors, an over-flow of life, now this is all that remains: rubble. Your feet that you walk in and sink until the ankles, bented spikes of rusty iron bars, shattered glasses, metal sheets, bullet-ridden blown up shutters. Powder and stones. Nothing else. But really nothing else. Rebels drag you around alley by alley, shop by shop as if you were a tourist; this is the cotton market, they explain you, this is the gold market, on your right you find the spices, down there is the silver. And they are but rubble. Here is where brides come to buy their gowns, and they point out the butt of something, here their wedding band - verbs in present tense: and you see but nothing. There's not even a rat, here." (C) Stanley Greene. All rights reserved. Tomorrow marks the third anniversary of the worst humanitarian crisis in modern times: the Syrian civil war. NOOR’s Stanley Greene and Andrea Bruce worked extensively to cover the crisis in 2013. Take a look at Crisis in Syria, our collection of stories about the conflict, on the NOOR website. #syria #aleppo #crisis #conflict #civilwar #photojournalism #noorimages

Manar is 16 years old and every morning she walks from her shelter in a refugee settlement to the nearby fields to pick potatoes. Just one of the millions of children who have lost their childhood because of this appalling war. #lebanon #syria #refugees #conflict #middleeast #childlabor
