U.N. Report Reveals Children Are Being Used As Human Shields In Syria

Filed under: Sad Sad

Children massacred in syria

Ugh! This is absolutely AWFUL!

A United Nations report has found that the Syrian military has been murdering children and even using them as human shields under President Bashar Assad's rule.

For obvious good reason, the country was added to the U.N.'s "list of shame" after the global organization became aware of the violence committed against civilians in Syria. The report from Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Children and Armed Conflict Radhika Coomaraswamy read:

"Children between 8 and 13 were forcibly taken from their homes and used by soldiers as human shields, placing them in front of the windows of buses carrying military personnel into the raid on villages. Schools have been regularly raided, used as military bases and detention centres. In detention, girls and boys were beaten, blindfolded, subjected to stress positions and to electrical shocks, as well as whipped with heavy electrical cables."

Terrible, just terrible!

Although it seems like there is no justice in sight for the victims of these atrocities, Radhika has said this:

“The world is keeping a detailed account of the violence committed against civilians in Syria and I am confident that these crimes will not go unpunished.”

Let's hope so!

The fighting between the Syrian government and rebels has caused 10,000 deaths this year alone and with no signs of stopping, that number can only grow. Sadly, innocent civilians always pay the ultimate price when two parties struggle for power.
