BERLIN - When Anas AlBasha joined the Syrian uprising, he was a second-year civil engineering student participating in the protests back in March, 2012. A bullet from security forces loyal to Syrian regime leader Bashar al Assad pierced through the neck of the protester standing next to him. As AlBasha helped transport him to the hospital, he too was shot, three times in the leg. He was forced to go into hiding in the suburbs of his hometown, Aleppo.
