This seven-year-old boy soldier, Ahmed, is the son of a rebel fighter in war-torn Syria. In addition to brandishing an AK-47 assault rifle, he’s also puffing on a cigarette like a seasoned adult. The barricade behind him is located on the front lines of the Syrian Civil War in the Salahadeen neighborhood of Aleppo.
