Bana Al-Abed, the Syrian seven-year-old, who posted on Twitter in real time, from the middle of the massive bombing from Aleppo, was evacuated from the inferno a few days ago.

On Wednesday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan welcomed Bana in his office from Ankara.

‘Bana Al-Abed, the girl from Syria and her family made us a pleasant visit at the presidential palace’, posted the Turkish state leader on Twitter.


The caption was attached to a series of heart-warming photos from the meeting.

‘Turkey will always support its Syrian brothers’, added Tayyip on social media.

According to CNN, President Ergodan has sent a group of militants in Aleppo to safely evacuate Bana and her family from Aleppo.

Bana Al-Abed ‘s house was eventually bombed, during a military offensive, and the toddler, literally, disappeared from the online environment.

According to the American TV network, the seven-year-old and her parents were forced to hide from the government forces because the Syrian Administration was disturbed by her posts. Finally, Bana and her parents were evicted from Aleppo after the truce, finding refuge in Turkey.

The Turkish humanitarian organization announced on Twitter that Bana and her family ‘were evacuated this morning from Aleppo’. They also published a photo with the seven-year-old with a bonnet on her head, accompanied by a NGO employee.

Since September, Bana Al-Abed (@AlabedBana) and her mother tweeted images of their everyday struggle in Aleppo.  Her account is currently followed by 323.000 people.

In one of the posts tweeted on Sunday, she implored Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu to evacuate the residents trapped in the rebel-held area.
