Syrian father teaches daughter to cope with bombs through laughter

In video posted on social media, Abdullah Mohammad and his daughter Salwa, three, can be heard laughing at the sound of shelling in Syria. Mohammad, who moved his family from Idlib to Sarmada district, has tried to insulate his daughter from trauma by telling her the noise of bombs is part of a game. In September 2018, Turkey and Russia agreed to turn Idlib into a de-escalation zone in which acts of aggression are prohibited, but since then more than 1,800 civilians have been killed in attacks by the Assad regime and Russian forces

    This video makes me feel like I'm going to cry. It's great that he is trying to help his daughter cope but it's sad that they have to do it in the first place.

    Kudos to you Sir, you brought both a smile and a broken hearted tear that you suffer so. You are a brilliant father of a beautiful daughter. 💙

    Didn't knew they like this.
    So the victims on one Side, our Soilders on the other do this also mostly for Fun. So is this just a Real Life Fortnite in Hardcore Mode or Battle Royale Thing?

    Thank you America for raising two generations of middle east children under bombs. We will regret this.

    I believe the father is trying to minimize the trauma his child will suffer through her childhood, because of war! This is so sad, I wish, WAR would end!

    So now she's going to associate laughter with bombs for the rest of her life.

    It's all cute until this girl becomes supreme ruler of Syria and starts dropping bombs for laughs

    Better to die in joyous laughter than cowering and suffering in fear. What a beautiful gift, to preserve a child’s innocence for as long as possible. 💖

    Will Putin pay the reparation cost of Syrian infrastructure? Bashar Al Assad is a tyrant being supported by the Tehran jokers and Moscow criminals. Assad wake up before it is too late.

    This is so heartbreaking. She has a beautiful laugh and it’s a lovely moment between father and daughter but in such horrific circumstances. I can’t imagine the underlying fear they’re feeling. I despise war. It solves nothing and breeds hatred out of loss.

    Please, stop the bombing, end the war

    The sound of a bomb and the sound of a child’s laughter. The love of a father protecting his girl from the horrors of war. Heartbreaking and beautiful in the same time. Humanity at its best and at its worst, captured in 21 seconds.

    None of us chose war. None of us want to be government mind slaves. We are a product of a society raped of its love
