Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) is listed for recruitment and use of children, killing and maiming, rape and other forms of sexual violence, abductions, and attacks on schools and hospitals. The Council extended UNAMI’s mandate through SCR 2367 (2017) in July, and in October, it will receive the SG’s progress report. In his second quarterly report (S/2017/592, paras. 51, 52), the SG expressed concern over the high number of attacks on health facilities and health personnel reported by the World Health Organization (WHO), noting three documented incidents of attacks on schools and hospitals. In August, UNAMI and OHCHR issued a report regarding the Promotion and Protection of Rights of Victims of Sexual Violence Captured by ISIL/or in Areas Controlled by ISIL in Iraq, which provides detailed information on this grave violation against children’s rights. Council Members should:
