17 children killed in attack in SyriaIdlib: UNICEF report

Destruction in Idlib
Up to 17 children were killed earlier this week in Idlib when heavy violence near a UNICEF-supported school forced children to flee to an underground shelter in a nearby building, which then came under attack, a UNICEF report said.
Around 1 million children live amid the escalating violence in Idlib. Across Syria, over 300 education facilities have been attacked since the beginning of the conflict.
As UNICEF gains access to children in areas that have been under siege for the past five years, the scale of the suffering and the trauma they have endured becomes clearer – as does the need for lifesaving support.
