From inside the war zone, Frontline gives the most timely view yet of this newest front in the Syrian revolution.

    Also in this hour, a report from the besieged city of Aleppo, where more than 2000 children have been killed in the fighting. This intimate portrait exposes what life is like for children who stay behind and are forced to adapt, as the world around them slips further into chaos.
