But fierce battles fought between government forces and rebels have seen hundreds of residents killed, including 27 children, according to the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

A young seven year old Harry Potter fan, who was recently befriended by author JK Rowling, has claimed that her home in the besieged Syrian city of Aleppo has been destroyed by bombing. "She wants real help for the murder stopped".

"Tonight we have no house, it's bombed & I got in the rubble", read the tweet, which was "signed" by Bana.

She added: "I saw deaths and I nearly died".

Yesterday Bana's mother posted what she feared would be their final message: 'Under heavy bombardments now, can't be alive anymore.

Bana - who dreams of being a teacher - has more than 131,000 followers after sharing her experience of living through war on Twitter.

Both messages were re tweeted by Rowling.

A Syrian girl whose Twitter account has revealed the horrors of life in Aleppo has said she is "between death and life" as heavy bombardments in the city continue. They have tweeted about the steady stream of bombing, sent pleas to end the conflict to politicians, and shared short videos of Bana and her brothers drawing, playing and praying. She said that the civil war, which began over five years ago, has dramatically impacted their education.

Bana Alabed's mother, Fatemah Alabed, who runs her daughter's Twitter page, said to Reuters that Bana had received all of the Harry Potter books and she would start reading them immediately.

The response? Rowling then retweeted with: "Bana, this made me so happy!"

Harry Potter author, JK Rowling. Lots of love to you and your brothers! "Thinking of you, keep safe #Aleppo", Rowling replied.
