Few videos could highlight the tenuous situation in Syria as one published Sunday afternoon showing a boy with his jaw completely blown off.

The video also contains other children with their limbs removed during Syrian President Bashar Assad’s violent crackdown on dissent.

The condition of the boy is unclear at the time of this post.

WARNING: This video contains graphic and disturbing images. It was published on February 5, 2012. The boy in the picture above is not the one featured in the video.
