At least three people were killed in Aleppo, Syria on Monday. But—as conditions for journalists become more and more dangerous—reports about the situation on the ground there are becoming few and far between.

"All too often we're not really there on the ground seeing what it's like to be Syrian and being shelled and under attack. Too often it's all body counts or number of airstrikes, and you don't hear those human stories," said Charles Sennott, head of The GroundTruth Project.

Sennott—who joined Boston Public Radio on the line from New York ahead of World Press Freedom Day—also addressed the state of the ceasefire in Syria. After a shaky nine-week peace, the ceasefire seemed to fall apart last week when 250 people were killed in airstrikes and artillery attacks. Secretary of State John Kerry is in Geneva attempting to stop the violence, once again. 

"When you allow some of the violence to diminish and some of the shelling to stop and just let people breathe, not only are you doing the thing you have to do to save lives, but you are allowing something to maybe take shape that can put an end to this," Sennott said.
