The Revolutionary Forces of Syria Media Office shared photos of children in war-torn Syria holding up photos of Pokémon in a ‘plea to the world to come to their rescue’.
The photo series urges the world to remember the Syria crisis which, according to Save The Children, has left more than a quarter of a million children living under siege.
The images show young Syrians looking dejectedly into the camera holding images of Pokemon characters with the words: “I am here, come save me”.
