GlobalPost senior correspondent Tracey Shelton is in Aleppo, covering the Syrian conflict. As Shelton is recording the story of three freedom fighters and their daily lives battling the Assad regime from a backstreet post in Aleppo, a call comes in about an enemy tank spotted nearby.

Shelton's dSLR records video of the men beginning to ready themselves at their post, but the tank is closer than expected and the assault catches them unprepared. The terrible result is the loss of three lives, and in the tragic series of frames Shelton captures something incredibly rare: an image showing the exact moment of the shell impact.

Video & full image series located in this GlobalPost article.
