Amidst the rubble, fighting and the bombs dropping from the sky, a 7 year old girl is finding refuge in her mother's arms and most recently, on Twitter.
Since September, Bana has been tweeting about the war through her eyes, giving a fresh perspective to the war which has lasted for over 5 years.
In some photos, shes telling us stories from the things around her.
