SAWASYA: International Community Neglects Rights of Palestinian and Syrian Children
SAWASYA: International Community Neglects Rights of Palestinian and Syrian Children
While hundreds of Palestinian and Syrian children are killed and maimed by ruthless regimes, the world witnessing their horrendous tragedies mostly ignores their indescribable suffering.

On the anniversary of the International Day for the Rights of the Child on 20 November, SAWASYA Center for Human Rights and Anti-Discrimination expressed deep sadness for the tremendous tragedies suffered by Arab children – especially in Syria and Palestine, where they are killed in cold blood every day.

Official statistics issued by human rights organizations confirm that most martyrs of the Syrian regime and the brutal aggression on the Palestinian people in Gaza are women and children –which is an intolerable moral crime that cannot be overlooked.

In a statement, SAWASYA said that such clearly criminal regimes do not respect norms or international covenants on human rights, as they commit humanitarian crimes of unspeakable cruelty and unbridled insanity, amid unjustifiable international silence.

SAWASYA stressed that the rights of the Arab and Muslim child were in grave danger as a result of violent, provocative practices by some regimes and extremist groups against innocent children, who fall every day with the whole world just watching on.

SAWASYA also called on the international community to pressure authoritarian regimes to respect the rights of the child, and to refer any regimes that commit acts of aggression against children to the International Criminal Court as war criminals.

Moreover, SAWASYA called on the media to expose persecution practices perpetrated by these regimes against innocent children, victims of wars and acts of extreme racism.
