ALEPPO, Syria - Their names were Issa, Ahmed and Sheik
Mahmoud Qasim. They were fathers, brothers, civilian fighters. In
an instant they all lost their lives as a tank blast exploded through
their post. But in Syria there is no time to mourn. The survivors
washed away the blood and flesh in a heartbreaking clean up. New
fighters came to take their posts. And the battle continued.
