UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS)
According to the latest United Nations (UN) report on Syria, the brutal war in this country has captivated children since their childhood as they are forced to be part of and endure numerous human rights abuses.
A report by the UN Commission of Inquiry on Syria unveiled the latest findings at the UN Office in Geneva, stressing that Syrian children remain affected by “violence and abuse”.
In a 25-page report titled “They Have Erased My Kids’ Dreams,” said UN Inquiry Commission head Paulo Sergio Pinheiro, describing the circumstances as “shame and scandal”.
In the report, the commission describes violations of children’s rights in the conflict, with over 5 million juveniles displaced at home and abroad.
“I am shocked at the flagrant disregard of the laws of war and the Convention on the Rights of the Child by all parties involved in the conflict,” Pinheiro said.
According to the report, the Syrian government has primary responsibility for protecting boys and girls in the country, while everyone should do more for the children, who are the country’s next generation.
In one passage, the report states that “captive from their childhood and forced to be part of a brutal war, children were killed and killed in large numbers.”
The report points out that in addition to regular targeting of children with the use of snipers, regime forces have often targeted civilian ammunition, thermonuclear bombs and chemical weapons such as schools and hospitals.
“The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant Terrorist Group (ISIS) subjected the young girls to the age of 9 to sexual slavery and systematically recruited and used children for direct participation in military operations,” the report said, adding that the children were victims. of public executions and were forced to play the role of executors by the terrorist group.
The Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria consists of Pinheiro, Karen Koning Abuzayd and Hanny Megally.
They were mandated by the UN Human Rights Council to investigate and record all violations of international law since March 2011 in Syria.
