Save the Children: Syrian children in terror in besieged areas

Save the Children reported on Wednesday that an estimated quarter of a million of children live in terror in besieged areas of Syria, where barrel bombs, airstrikes and shelling are happening on a daily basis.

 

In a report published ahead of the Geneva peace talks, Save the children writes that children deprived of food are forced to eat boiled leaves and animal feed, while living in constant fear of attacks.

 

According to aid workers, children in certain parts of Syria although living very close to warehouses that are filled with life saving humanitarian aid are still dying due to lack of food and medicines.

 

According to the charity organization, children are being treated by veterinarians, forced to eat animal feed, and hide from attacks in basements.

 

The United Nations reports that nearly five hundred thousand people are living under siege in Syria, out of millions who are in areas hard or unable to reach with aid.
