WARNING: SOME PEOPLE MAY FIND THESE IMAGES DISTRESSING

In this time where information is readily available 24/7/365, images of war and suffering can begin to blur into one. We become desensitised to the pain of others.

Five-year-old Omran Daqneesh was named by Aleppo Media Centre, who also took the video.

He wipes his head with his hand, looks down and realises it's covered in blood. Instead of reacting, he simply places his hand back down on his lap.

ABC reported that Omran 'suffered head wounds when his home in the rebel-held eastern suburbs of Aleppo was hit in an airstrike'.

He, along with three other children, were rescued and taken to hospital. Omran has been discharged, however the doctors don't know where his parents are.
