"They broke the door and came in. I was scared,” young Ahmad says. “They took my dad and left." Published Sunday, the video was produced by the Cairo-based ANA New Media Association. It shows Syrian boys in Egypt who claim to have witnessed raids on Syrians by Egyptian security forces, as well as harassment by Egyptian children.
The video comes amid reports that Syrians in Egypt face arbitrary detentions and deportation, as well as xenophobic sentiment allegedly spread by prominent media figures.
