WATCH: Omran might not even be 4 or 5 years old, but he has already experienced war's tragic reach. 

The northern Syrian city of Aleppo has been devastated by battles between pro-government forces and rebels. In the past weeks, more than 300 people have been killed.

Omran's face is the image of the civil war

Aid workers were quick to grab Omran out of the rubble in the neighborhood of al Qaterchi, a rebel-held area in Aleppo. He was covered in dust, rubble and blood. Omran sat in silence as the chaos reigned outside the ambulance.

Syria's civil war has been raging for years, creating a massive instability in the region and a global refugee crisis. Millions have fled or have been displaced within Syria's borders.

This tragic video was captured by the Aleppo Media Center, an activist organization.

As the war continues, many have questioned the world leaders' response to Syria. 

Miraculously, Omran's parents also survived the airstrike.
