Bana al-Abed, the famed Syrian girl in social media has tweeted her support for the US missile attack on Shayrat airbase in Syria, from where Tuesday's deadly chemical attack that killed scores of civilians in Idlib was launched.

The seven-year-old Syrian refugee, who fled with her mother to Turkey last December, tweeted this morning: “I am a Syrian child who suffered under Bashar al-Asad & Putin. I welcome Donald Trump’s action against the killers of my people.”

“We don’t want WORLD WAR THREE. We don’t want the war in Syria. Let’s stand together & end all wars,” she wrote.

Al-Abed is known across the world for chronicling life in the beleaguered city of Aleppo during the cataclysmic siege of the city by forces loyal to the regime. She has more than 360,000 followers on Twitter.

Al-Abed and her mother escaped Aleppo along with the thousands of civilians evacuated from the war-torn city last December and now live in Turkey, but the young girl continues to use Twitter to remind the world of the ordeal of her people.
