CAPE TOWN – A seven-year-old Syrian girl, who has captured international attention tweeting about daily life in rebel-held eastern Aleppo has shared a final message after her house was bombed.

Bana Alabed amassed more than one hundred thousand followers since joining the social media site in September, sharing videos and pictures of life amid the conflict.

But on Monday, her mother posted an update saying the family was on the run after their home was struck on Sunday night.

Bana’s mother Fatemah told CNN their home took a direct hit, forcing them into the street to wait for the planes to go and shelling to cease.

“Last message under heavy bombardment, can’t be alive anymore. When we die, keeping for 200,000 still inside. Bye.”

After an airstrike destroyed their home, Bana’s familiar face is covered in dust. The young girl is clearly shell shocked and now homeless.

“There’s nothing left to be said”, Fatemah told CNN afterwards.
