The Syrian Coalition: The Syrian children are deprived of the most basic rights to life

The Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC) issued a statement on June 4, in which it said that the Syrian children are living a complex suffering and deprived of the most basic rights to life.

The statement comes on the occasion of the International Day of Innocent Children Victims of Aggression. The SOC drew attention to Syrian children’s rights to live in peace and security as all the children in the world.

The number of Syrian child victims has surpassed tens of thousands as a result of the attacks by Assad regime over 13 years, during which the children lived a composed suffering due to killing, arrest, displacement, and blockade, according to the statement.

The SOC stressed the continuation of the Syrian children’s tragedy due to the Assad regime’s obstruction of the political process, the weakness of the humanitarian response and the failure to meet their needs.

The statement considered that the “international inaction towards the Syrian file and the absence of international will lead to deepen the humanitarian crises and create dire living conditions, and so tragically reflecting on children.”

The statement also called on the international community to hold its responsibility, find a way out of the political stalemate, and push towards implementing the 2254 and 2118 UN Resolutions so that the Syrian people can address the repercussions of the ongoing crises and secure a bright future for children.

The Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR) issued earlier a statement on the occasion of the International Day of Innocent Children Victims of Aggression, in which it documented the killing of 30,228 children in Syria since March 2011, including 199 who died due to torture.

The SNHR confirmed that “the Assad regime perpetrated the worst forms of aggression against children in Syria, despite having ratified the UN Convention on the Rights of Child (UNCRC) in 1993.”
