Surviving in Darayya: 'We don't have homes anymore'

Syrian army forces are advancing behind a steady barrage of barrel bombs and missiles into the rebel-held city of Darayya near Damascus.

The offensive has left nearly 8,000 people trapped in a residential area at the heart of the city.

Darayya was among the first cities to report protests against President Bashar al-Assad's government. It has been besieged without food aid for four years.

The BBC Arabic has gained an intimate glimpse of how thousands of families are surviving the daily shelling.
