, June 12, 2013

A member of a rebel group called the Martyr Al-Abbas walks with his weapon in a damaged building in Aleppo on June 11. The group, which consists of five brothers and other members, operates under the Free Syrian Army, and was first established in the memory of the brothers' sibling Abbas Sheikh Yasine, who died from fighting in a battle in Sheikh Saeed, against forces of President Bashar Al-Assad's regime, according to the brothers. One of the brothers used to work in the decor industry, another in a restaurant, while the three others were in school before the war started, they added. Reuters/Muzaffar Salman
