His name is Mohammed Eid, he’s 4 years old from Syria and apparently suffered a facial burn during a bombing. He needs a surgery to restore his eyelids. The cameraman asked him to look at the camera, and close his eyes. At the 0:06 minute mark he tried, but the best he could do was roll his eyes backwards to hide the iris from the light.
It was not specified what kind of bombing lead to his injury. Terrorists are highly active with car bombings, there was also that recent chemical attack by the FSA but I think that one was more of an attempt to kill people, rather than burn them. Brutal either way to end up disfigure like that at such an early age. Looks like Harlequin ichthyosis.
Props to Best Gore member DerSteppenwolf for the video.
