A young face scarred by war: The impact of an air strike one year on

Jouma and his family were fleeing their home in Syria in 2018 when an air strike hit the bus they were on. Evidence indicates that Turkey carried out the air strike.

The little boy's face was severely wounded and he was left completely blind. He was three years old at the time.

The family now live in neighbouring Lebanon and allowed the BBC's Eloise Alanna to film them in their temporary home.

Correction 19 August 2019: A previous headline for this story referred to a "Syrian air strike". The story has since been updated.
