A Syrian child took to Twitter Sunday evening after her Aleppo home was destroyed.

Bana Alabed, 7, tweeted late Sunday, "Tonight we have no house, it's bombed and I got in rubble. I saw deaths and I almost died."

According to CNN, Syrian regime forces launched a ground assault in Aleppo on Saturday in an effort to retake portions of the city from rebels.

Bana’s Twitter account, which she uses with her mother, Fatemah, posted several additional messages saying the family is “between death and life.”

Fatemah told CNN in a direct message on Twitter that none of her three children — Mohamed, 5, Noor, 3, and Bana — were injured in the strike and that the family sought shelter in a nearby house after their home was destroyed.

Prior to the destruction of their home, Bana’s Twitter account shared images of turmoil in the city.

The Twitter account gained worldwide attention after the family started to tweet about everyday life in a war zone.

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling recently sent Bana electronic copies of her books after she requested them on Twitter.
