The war in Syria is a war on children. More children were killed in Idlib in the last four weeks than all of last year. The situation in North West Syria – home to 3 million people – is a nightmare.
‘It seems as though the different sides have stopped fighting each other and are fighting … civilians, now. It’s just senseless brutality. I saw dozens of people killed in the marketplace, torn to pieces, including many young children who were playing on the street. They should have been safe.’ - Ahmad*, an eyewitness.
Syria’s children have seen and experienced horrors no child ever should. Attacks on schools and hospitals threaten their education and healthcare – they’re fighting for their futures and we need to protect them.
