UNICEF Reiterates Need To Protect Children In Syria

(MENAFN - Qatar News Agency) The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) has reiterated the need to protect the children in Syria, saying that the reported killing of 11 children in two separate attacks this week in Rural Damascus and in Al Qalamoun Mountains is a "horrific and tragic reminder of the human cost of the conflict inflicted by all sides in the fighting." Too many children have suffered from the violence and terror of a conflict over which they have no influence.



This suffering has to end and all parties to the conflict must uphold their responsibilities to protect children, the UNICEF said in a statement. UNICEF repeats its call for those involved in the fighting, and those with influence over them, to bring an immediate end to this crisis which has not only devastated the lives of millions of children, but is creating terrifying long-term consequences for the future stability of Syria and the region.
