“My son’s throat was cut,” she said. “He was 12.”

“Perhaps we cannot prevent this world from being a world in which children are tortured. But we can reduce the number of tortured children.” — Albert Camus

Syrian army and security officers with the help of Iranian mercenaries have been torturing children with impunity during the past year. There have also been cases documented of children who were shot while in their homes or on the street. Syrian Human Rights Activists told us that they have seen the government use schools as detention centers, military bases or barracks and children have been arrested from their schools!

Witnesses from the towns of Baba Amr, al-Janoudyah, Kafr Nabl, Kafr Rouma, and Ayn Larouz in the Idlib governorate in northern Syria told us that they saw the army and pro-government armed men, referred to locally as shabeeha, force people especially children to march in front of the advancing army during the March 2012 offensive to retake control of areas that had fallen into the hands of the opposition. From the circumstances of these incidents, it was clear to the witnesses that the purpose of this was to protect the army from attack.

Slaughtering and torturing children is now considered as a profession for Al-Assad thugs, that’s why you gotta (sign, share and let the whole world know about these soulless creatures). I hope you can sign this petition, or at least spread it, and once enough people have signed, we will get decision makers’ attention directly!
I believe that this horrible human rights violations done by Al-Assad thugs must be stopped as soon as possible.

We need a real/responsible action, guys.

    in my opinion this is where the military of any nation should step in and call a halt to this. These are children for doG’s sake!
