The dangers for children go beyond death and injury. Boys as
young as 12 have been recruited to support the fighting, some
in actual combat, others to work as informers, guards, or arms
smugglers. Two-thirds of Syrians surveyed in the most insecure
governorates believe that child recruitment has accelerated.
Families have also described how children are seized by armed
forces from homes, schools, hospitals and checkpoints.
According to a recent UN report, children as young as 11 are being detained
with adults. In some cases, they are being subjected to torture and
sexual abuse to humiliate them, force confessions, or pressure
relatives to surrender.
The No Lost Generation strategy proposes practical
ways to address the harsh reality that a generation of
Syrian children is being shaped by violence,
displacement, and a persistent lack of opportunity
and could be lost forever, with profound long-term
consequences for Syria, the region, and beyond.
