Beirut: Ever since the picture of drowned Syrian kid Aylan Kurdi, washed up on a Turkey beach went viral, the world at large, suddenly seemed concerned about the war-stricken people of Syria.

However, Aylan Kurdi, is not the first kid who lost his innocent life, while crossing the Mediterranean to escape the battle, from his hometown of Kobani in Syria.

Four years of civil war in Syria have seen almost 2,80,000 people losing their lives, many of them being children.

One such Syrian girl, who was killed in a shelling attack, is shown with an unconsolable father weeping near her dead body, in a heartrending YouTube video.

The video shows a distraught father, sobbing and clinging to his dead girlchild, refusing to let go of her as a bunch of people try to lift him up.

The video that has been posted on the YouTube, by 'Mid-East Watch', later shows the grisly close-up of the girlchild, with blood splattered nearby.
