Pushing for education in war-torn Syria

Deraa was the birth place of the revolt against President Bashar al-Asaad's rule.

    The war in Syria has left tens of thousands of people dead and and millions of others displaced. It has also stopped many students from going to school.

    But there are some children who remain determined to get a basic education despite the conflict.

    Al Jazeera's Omar Al Saleh reports from Deraa.
