The Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR) said that it has documented the death of nearly 21,000 children in Syria since the outbreak of the Syrian revolution in March 2011.
In a report released on Sunday, the network said that the Assad regime is responsible for the death of over 19,000 children, including 297 children killed by sniper fire and 159 died under torture.
The report indicated that at least 10,000 children have been detained by regime forces since March 2011, while 37,000 more have been orphaned. Nearly 4,083 educational facilities have been damaged as a result of regime attacks, according to the report. At least two million children inside Syria are deprived from education, the report also said. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
