Syrian State-Run Media Starts Hashtag Campaign Which Backfires

Syria's official state-run news outlet invited people to share their snapshots of summer on Monday.
The outlet's @SANA_English account tweeted the hashtag #SummerinSyria to its 15,600 followers, encouraging people to share their "moments of summer" across Syria.
Instead, users partaking in the Twitter campaign have elected to show the ravaging affect of war across their country.
This isn't the first gaffe by the news outlet.
SANA regularly reports on lighthearted events in the capital city of Damascus, in the midst of insurrection and a growing refugee crisis.
For the untold number of Syrian refugees living in camps within neighboring Lebanon, there will be no Summer in Syria.
