A 13-Year-Old Syrian’s Message to Europe

Footage from Budapest

An interview with a 13-year-old Syrian refugee is being widely shared on Facebook, clearly demonstrating the current crises for refugees within Europe.

Al Jazeera interviewed Kinan Masalmeh in Budapest, Hungary, where he eloquently summed up what many people don’t realise about the Syrian civil war.

Kinan, who reportedly escaped the city of Deraa with his sister, told the network:

Please help the Syrians… The Syrians need help now. Just stop the war. We don’t want to stay in Europe, just stop the war.

Al Jazeera first met 13-year-old Syrian refugee Kinan in the Hungarian border town of Szeged last week. Outside Budapest’s main international railway station, we found him among the hundred of refugees who have been stranded for a second day as authorities continue to block them from travelling to other countries.
