The Syrian interim government called upon the international community and international bodies concerned with education and children, particularly the United Nations, the UNICEF, and the UNESCO, to act in order to save Syria’s children and schools from the Russian barbaric aggression. It also called for adopting a clear and firm position on Russia’s barbaric attacks on schools in Syria.
Yesterday, Russian warplanes hit three schools in western rural Aleppo and two other schools in the town of Hour in rural Aleppo whilst pupils were sitting exams. The airstrikes caused a horrible massacre which claimed the lives of nearly 35 pupils and teachers. The strikes reduced the schools to rubble, leaving dozens wounded, some of them seriously.
The Syrian interim government reiterated calls on the UN Security Council to seriously work on putting an immediate end to the suffering of the Syrian people who have been subjected to a systematic genocide by the Assad regime and its allied sectarian militias as well as the Russian and the Iranian aggressors.
