Ibrahim (UN Web TV video capture)

The ongoing conflict in Syria continues to take its toll on civilians, including children.

More than 100,000 have died and millions of others displaced from their home in the conflict that has entered its fourth year.

There appears to be no end in sight.

But statistics don't really tell the story of the suffering of the people who have lost loved ones and those who continue to live with the physical and psychological scars of the war.

Alexandra King reports on one of them, Ibrahim, a young Syrian boy, who is today struggling to make sense of life after losing his entire family in an attack on a farm last year.
