UNICEF calls to consider children being used by militants not as terrorists, but as victims of international terrorism

43
Organization UNICEF (United Nations International Emergency Fund for Children) has published a report that refers to the activities of children in terrorist groups. The report says that the militants have recently become more active in using children under the age of 14 years as suicide bombers. The largest increase in the percentage of children as “living bombs” is noted for the terrorist organization “Boko Haram” operating in Africa.


If during the 2014 year, the Boko Haram militants used children as suicide bombers four times, then 2015 showed 11-fold growth: the 44 of the child died, actually becoming hostages in the hands of the militants putting on deadly belts.

The greatest number of children as suicide bombers used in Cameroon - 21 child. Cases of explosive live bombs have been reported in Nigeria, Mali, Chad, Cote d'Ivoire.

Not only the terrorist group Boko Haram uses suicide bombers for children. Similar actions in relation to children are practiced by ISIL and “Front en Nusra”. In these groups, children are trained in special training camps either with the aim of turning them into militants with weapons in the hands, or in the next "live bomb".

UNICEF calls to consider children being used by militants not as terrorists, but as victims of international terrorism


The director of UNICEF in West and Central Africa, Manuel Fontaine, urges the international community not to regard these children as criminals, but to see them as victims of terrorism. According to him, the militants are engaged in deceiving children, implanting destructive ideology in the children's environment against the background of the substitution of religious concepts and life principles and ideals.

      Confirmation follows.

      According to the Mi-28N, it was not shot down. But the main thing is that he still was not shot down.

      Well, I think IN will discuss this.

      Could they really see the light, or did they give the go-ahead? Using children as an instrument of terrorism is even more criminal than terrorism itself.

      children absorb information like a sponge ... many character traits and some views on what is good and what is bad are laid down in a child as a foundation with which a person is formed over time ... some views will certainly change over time but this foundation will remain for life ... anyone grow up with a predisposition to violence and terrorism

        UNICEF (or who will be delegated from this delegation there) will disarm them themselves and explain that they have taken the wrong path while the children of jihad keep representatives on the fly?

        Of course, good is good and good intentions, but there is always a but.

        I would have looked from a trench with 800 meters at the time of their disarmament by Europeans

        PS Yesterday 3 losers who sent themselves to hell under fireworks - there, 96 year of birth was among them. PPC

      And when the same kids in Afghanistan shot our guys in the back. They are also victims of terrorism. And how to explain to the mother of the deceased that her son was killed not by a bearded man but by a child. And what will grow out of this victim of terrorism? He will not be a normal person.

        what else to expect from them and what kind of statements.

    And now what? All the same, I have to destroy the explosives hung out of place. The law of war. Kill or they will kill you. Personally, I’ll be hit by a drum who will blow me up a deceived youngster or a fully conscious adult.
    A bullet fired by a 10-year-old kid also reliably stacks, like a bullet fired by a commando.
    It’s not at all clear what exactly offers делать Manuel Fontaine, Director of UNICEF in West and Central Africa ... Who to consider them and what to do with them in a combat situation, if there is a threat to life from their actions, there are two completely different issues that intersect only theoretically.

        Or if such a child dies during an operation of the SAR or the Russian Federation, it will be possible to make the headline not "Government troops killed a suicide bomber", but "RUSSIAN MILITARY KILLING CHILDREN."
        The West has long been waging a dirty information war and rarely does anything just like that.

          This is the whole trick of the Western neoliberals represented by UNICEF Director for West and Central Africa Manuel Fontaine. Namely, in order to preserve the terrorist youth in society for the fulfillment of their own selfish goals as a tool to suppress the healthy part of humanity in the form of disputes of a certain "psycho-bacteriological" infection of terrorism in children - so that terrorism is never excreted. No really! An infectious infection is destroyed in the bud - and this is right for the healthy survival of all mankind! Therefore, these "children" will have to be written off as "junk" as descendants of the degenerate Satanists. They are already lost to society. But the terrorists-satanists, who are growing out of them to replace themselves, should not be allowed to the children. This is what you need to think about - how to do it?

        It is precisely to rehabilitate terrorists and enemies that couch strategists can offer.
        I do not see at all any connection between our veterans and terrorists, terrorists, whether voluntarily or not, committing terrorist acts.
        And at whose expense to rehabilitate them in sanatoriums? For ours?

          And of course, these Syrian teenagers have no mothers of sisters and brothers in Raqqa or in other cities captured by terrorists. Of course, it’s up to you to decide how in Syria your internal issue will be decided with its citizens who, for various reasons, were driven into suicide squads for the needs of terrorists.

          If the leaders of Chechnya or Dagestan had followed this principle of solving the "problem", the "clan" war would never have stopped - it would have.

    and what difference does it take to consider them, if the deed is done - the terrorist attack is perfect? Well, now let us make all teenagers of 14 years old unaccountable / victims of circumstances in ordinary criminal cases. instead of this nonsense that this unisefsher blurted out, let them do business. they have billions of revolutions, and hungry children are so hungry, they die by thousands from hunger around the world. It seems this is a total attempt to hide their criminal activity. I have never heard that Unicef ​​feed the children, at least the Syrian territories liberated by us. but I’m silent about the rest.

    How much everything in this world is turned upside down.
    Earlier, some 75 years ago, a guy 10-12 years old brought explosives to the station and laid it under the railway tracks.
    The trains with German technology flew downhill, the enemy’s manpower was dying.
    They were caught and shot.
    In our minds they are heroes.
    For example, the Golovaty brothers from Krasnodar.

    Here the situation is the same with ours.
    Children destroy those whom adults show them.

    Very scary phenomenon.

    Young, unaware of why and why he must die, practically a child, becomes a hell of a toy.

      Don't confuse horseradish with a goose neck. Where did you see that partisan children blew up churches, markets, houses with civilians in Germany? Nobody invited fascist military echelons to the territory of the USSR. And if you do not see this difference, then yes, this is a "very scary phenomenon".

So the rules prescribe me ...

    There is a double relationship around, and even on such a serious issue as involving children in terrorist activities. UNICEF children feel sorry for anyone who finances the abduction; they don’t say a word. What tasks do these children fulfill in their interests. Turkey is a NATO member country and doesn’t even hide and supplies these terrorist organizations weapons and explosives.
    But Turkey has nothing to do with it, and NATO doesn’t know at all: how is it?

    Seriously, according to our Criminal Code, he is still not a subject under 14 years of age. If there is a reason to recognize him as "mentally broken" - they will treat him, if not - UD will be stopped or denied. Recognizing as a victim is relevant for Africa and the Middle East, there they can cut off at 12 heads.

      "why is a mad animal destroyed, and a mad" man "is treated, and for my taxes" -

      the most famous historical character who spoke about the same as you - Adolf Hitler - "I built a nation of healthy, active creators. Why do we need madmen, from whom madmen are born? After all, they are extremely sexually active. What, feed and procreate idiots?" the idea was brought to life.
      "The program of killing" T-4 "(German Aktion Tiergartenstraße 4," Operation Tiergartenstrasse 4 ") is the official name of the eugenic program of the German National Socialists for the sterilization and later physical destruction of people with mental disorders, mentally retarded and hereditary patients . Subsequently, disabled persons were included in the circle of persons subjected to destruction (disabled people, as well as those who were sick for over 5 years). First, only children under three years old were destroyed, then all age groups. "

      Any questions???

    I didn’t want to react, but for that tolerant citizen who neglected and did not accept my position, I want to explain. After serving in the Red Army, I worked at the factory for 15 years. Every year by spring, the number of stray dogs increased many times. All compassionate citizens wore leftovers (and not only) and fed the poor animals, while no one had the desire to take the dog to his home and take on the responsibility to answer for those who were tamed. But the summer came, the dogs grew up and managed a few workers ov to bite ... Then the howling of the victims began - the menagerie was bred, it is impossible for a person to go. Further, the administration takes measures to reduce the number of homeless animals and then animal defenders enter the fray. And so every year. Draw an analogy and if I am not right, I can dip in cons with a head. These dogs are also not predators, but victims of love for animals .....
