We have received the awful news that a staff member from one of Save the Children’s partner organisations in Aleppo was killed in an airstrike on Saturday night. Samer al-Khatib, aged 39, was an aid worker with Ihsan, a Syrian NGO which works on economic and social development in Syria and humanitarian relief.

He was killed as he returned home from his office at 5:15pm on Saturday. He was married with two children aged 5 and 6, and his wife is in her last month of pregnancy with a new baby.
