Abdul-Kafi al-Hamdo, a professor and East Aleppo resident, speaks with Al Jazeera about the current situation in the besieged and bombarded area:

Hamdo is also a friend of Fatemeh al-Abed, whose Twitter account — run on behalf of her 7-year-old daughter Bana — was a prominent source about life in east Aleppo until it was closed down days ago, following the damaging of the family apartment by a regime airstrike.

The professor has also been using Twitter to provide updates.
