Syria’s children are living today through the most damaging conflict for children in the region’s recent history. More than 5.5 million Syrian children now see their future besieged by war. It is estimated there are up to one million children who live under siege and in hard-to-reach areas that UNICEF and other humanitarian partners cannot access on a regular basis. This report takes stock of the impact that three years of violence and rights violations have had on children, and it assesses the longer-term crisis facing the region.
