The Russian air force has been bombing Syria since September. They say they're going after the Islamic State group, but many Western analysts say they're mostly targeting other groups opposed to Syrian President Bashar al Assad. The problem is - it's hard to know just what's happening if you're not there on the ground yourself... and few journalists dare to go. Our Observer Rami was one of the brave young Syrians who risked their lives four years ago to tell the world about the uprising against Assad. Now he's decided to go back… to Aleppo, a key battleground between Assad and the moderate rebels. He wanted to know why the Russians are bombing the city.
