Photo exhibition on Eastern Ghouta in Paris
(Zaman Al Wasl)- A photo exhibition for Syrian journalist Firas Abdullah took place in Paris last Thursday, delivering a powerful testimony of the Syrian horror during the nine-year-old war.

The exhibition includes a selection of photos taken in Ghouta suburbs, the eastern enclave of Damascus that endured to severe siege and brutal bombardment.

Eastern Ghouta was the scene of the first major protests against the rule of Bashar al-Assad in the capital.

The fall of eastern Ghouta in April 2018 was achieved in a brutal fashion and changed the course of the war.

More than 1,700 civilians were reportedly killed during the eight-week offensive.

The exhibition was held under the patronage of the 2nd arrondissement of Paris.

According to Le Diair, Abdullah, 27, was born in the city of Douma in eastern Ghouta. He is now a refugee in France. Before finding refuge in France, he tried to follow an engineering course at the University of Damascus where he enrolled in 2013, but he had to give up very quickly because even before the siege of the city, the access to the university was impossible.
