This Syrian cameraman is filming Aleppo's destruction as it happens

WATCH | One the most dangerous countries in the world for reporters, Syria has a severe shortage of journalists. 

We work all the time to send our message for the world. To tell them we need help.
Mohammed Harden

Filling that void are activists and citizen journalists. 

Mohammed Hardan is a volunteer video editor and cameraman for the Aleppo Media Center, an anti-government activist group in Syria that's trying to document the atrocities.

A member of the Aleppo Media Center captured this now-iconic image of a helpless Syrian boy sitting in the back of an ambulance after being pulled from the rubble. His name is Oman.

I see everything. I see the feeling of people that scream. their sorrow, their fear.
Mohammed Harden to Circa

On multiple occasions, Hardan says he's put down his camera to help the victims.  


Since a ceasefire was reached last week, as many as 25,000 people have been evacuated from the area,

according to the International Red Cross.

The deal -- essentially a surrender from the rebels  -- marked a victory for forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The regime, backed by its Russian allies, has waged a four-year battle for control of Aleppo's eastern neighborhoods.

As of Wednesday, Hardan was still in Aleppo - filming and trying to show the world what's happening to his homeland.
