(Human Rights Watch) –  In their new report “Safe No More: Students and Schools under Attack in Syria” released on 6 June 2013, Human Rights watch documents the use of schools for military purposes by both the government forces and the opposition armed groups. It describes how teachers and state security agents interrogated and beat students for alleged anti-government activity, and how security forces and shabiha, pro-government militias, assaulted peaceful student demonstrations. “Syrian children have had to face things in the horrors of war that no child should have to bear – interrogated, targeted, and attacked,” stated Priyanka Motaparthy, the report’s researcher at Human Rights Watch.
