Children continue to suffer and die from the nightmare of the terrorist war unleashed against Syria.
In one of the stories of the eminent Soviet writer Vladislav Krapivin, the hero performs a song in which there are such words: “It’s not true that the little ones catch death less often - after all, machine guns often cut at the edge of the earth.” But children are mowed not only by machine guns at the edge of the earth, but also by mortars - right in residential buildings.
On one of the warm July evenings, gangsters calling themselves “oppositionists” and “freedom fighters” fired mortar shells at the residential Mezze district of Damascus. A shell hit a residential building. 11-year-old boy died. Boy 8 years was seriously injured. An elderly man was injured. Shells do not understand who to kill - a boy or an old man. The projectile flies along a given trajectory, but what do people think about when it is released to residential areas? What kind of "revolution" and what kind of "freedom"? And most importantly - what do their patrons think? About "democracy" or about the wealth of the country, which is subject to their exorbitant appetites?
... In the province of Aleppo, the boy Fawzi Ayman Fouvaz was killed in the besieged by the terrorists village Zahra. He had a severe form of hepatitis, requiring urgent treatment, and he could not get the right medicine. Residents of the Nubbl and Zahra regions, which are considered “Shiite” by the terrorists (although in fact, representatives of various confessions have been living there, as well as throughout Syria) for months already. It is impossible to get not only drugs, but often food. And the terrorists shot down the teachers who tried to break into the area to organize school exams, the terrorists killed 7 people.
Children in Syria are suffering and dying not only directly from the bullets and shells of “freedom fighters”, not only from the blockade and the lack of medicines. Militants shell schools, seize school buildings and use them as headquarters and warehouses. weapons. The kids are left without knowledge, they do not have a normal life. In addition, gangsters use children and women as human shields.
The other day, Damascus was visited by the UN Special Representative for Children in Armed Conflict, Leila Zerrougui. She met with the Minister of Education, Ghazwan Al-Waz, and in talks with her he cited the following information:
Since the beginning of the disturbing events in Syria, gangsters have destroyed, captured, burned, blew up 2994 schools. 232 teacher died, was kidnapped or injured. More than 100 schoolchildren were killed by terrorists.
Leila Zerrougi was forced to admit that the Syrian authorities take care of the children, that they did everything possible to ensure that the learning process proceeded normally (at least in those areas where it is possible). She acknowledged that the government seeks to protect children, despite the fact that the country is experiencing a severe crisis and a terrorist war has been unleashed against it.
This is not the first visit of Madame Zerruga to Syria. The only problem is that at meetings with Syrian representatives, she speaks some words, and in reports to the UN - completely different. In particular, she also called on the UN Security Council to "take urgent measures" already against the Syrian government. She lacks the civil courage to tell the truth about what is happening and to demand to stop the arming of terrorists, from which all Syrians are suffering, and especially children.
During this visit, Mrs. Zerrougui together with the Minister of Social Affairs Sar Kinda Al-Shammat visited temporary accommodation centers in Damascus, where there are families who had to leave their places of residence due to the outrage of “opposition” bandits.
Kinda Ash-Shammat said that UN representatives should not use their trips to Syria for political purposes. She also said that she was surprised by the position of Leyla Zerrougui, ignoring the words and opinions of those women and children she meets now, with whom she met earlier, during her previous visits.
The other side of the “medal” is the involvement of children in criminal terrorist activities, which, from an early age, permanently cripples their psyche.
At the meeting of the Syrian Family Committee, its chairman Insaf Hamad stated that the terrorists violate the elementary rights of the child. They deprive them of the right to life, to study, to receive medical care. But the worst thing is that the militants are not limited to the killing of children and the desecration of their bodies. They recruit them to participate in their criminal activities. This constitutes a flagrant violation of all international laws. This is a gross violation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
For such crimes provides a serious responsibility. With those who recruit children, under international law, you can not have any relationship - neither financial nor political.
But the countries that benefit from terrorism in Syria, which are waging war against the country with someone else’s hands - deliberately ignore this problem. Not a single word did they condemn the “opposition”, which kills some children and involves other kids in the crimes.
Speaking at the meeting, the psychotherapist Leyla Al-Sharif said that participation in such acts would inevitably affect the behavior of children (of course, provided they survive). Children will become aggressive, their moral values will be completely distorted, great difficulties will arise in relations with parents and teachers.
It is necessary to add that, basically, the terrorists seek to kill children from one confessional group, and recruit children from another confessional group into their ranks. Thus, they strive to sow interfaith, interfaith strife for many years. If a child is told from the very beginning of his life that representatives of any confessional group need to be killed - with what scars it will fall on the whole future of the country!
But the harsh truth of life lies in the fact that children of all denominations are dying, so that the evil, barbaric theory of terrorists about the existence of certain “infidels” who “must be exterminated” is false and failed from the very beginning!
In the West, they continue to talk about "good" and "bad" terrorists, that one of them needs to be helped. As a result, people, and especially children, suffer and die from both “good” and “bad” terrorists in exactly the same way.
