Thousands of social media users have pledged to deactivate their Facebook accounts, or to turn their profile photos red, in an effort to draw attention to the Syrian government’s air offensive in Aleppo.

The hashtags ‪#‎MakeFacebookRed‬ and ‪#‎AleppoIsBurning‬ were being used to highlight the ongoing offensive, which has killed more than 240 people over the past week and forced many families to flee.
