(OHCHR) – The UN Committee on the Rights of the Child has called for accountability for the reprehensible acts being committed against children in Syria. “Yet again, children are bearing the brunt of horrific attacks in Syria,” said Committee Chair Benyam Dawit Mezmur, in reference to the large number of child victims of the recent attack on an evacuation convoy in Rasheedin, near western Aleppo, and of the reported use of chemical weapons in Khan Sheikhoun in southern Idlib earlier this month.
