UNICEF: Syria among 'most dangerous places on Earth' for children

Published: 03.11.14, 08:05 / Israel News

UNITED NATIONS - The number of children affected by the civil war in Syria has more than doubled over the past year, with hundreds of thousands of young Syrians trapped in besieged parts of the country, the United Nations Children's Fund said on Monday.

 

"After three years of conflict and turmoil, Syria is now one of the most dangerous places on earth to be a child," said the UNICEF report.
"In their thousands, children have lost lives and limbs, along with virtually every aspect of their childhood."

 

UNICEF said the child casualty rates were the highest recorded in any recent conflict in the region. It cited UN figures that at least 10,000 children have been killed in the Syrian war but noted that the real number is probably higher. (Reuters)
