Education system of Syria has suffered the most ever since the war broke out in the year 2011, schools have been hit the hardest and thus education has become a rare sight, according to NGO.
In a new report, the Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR) said that a total of 1,356 schools have been bombed since the war began more than 7 years ago. The NGO stated that the attacks carried out by regime forces, Russian warplanes, a US-led coalition, Daesh and YPG/PKK terrorist organizations and anti-regime opposition have left the schools in the worst possible condition.
The report further highlighted that an astounding 996 attacks were carried out by regime forces, 169 by Russian planes, US-led coalition launched 87 attacks, anti-regime 36, while Daesh are responsible for 23 attacks. Also, the NGO said about 42 more attacks have been carried by unidentified elements in Syria on schools.
The families have thus stopped sending their children to schools and instead are sending them to earn bread at such a tender age. The NGO said that a total of 361 schools have been damaged in the northwest province of Idlib, 260 in Aleppo, 198 in Damascus and its countryside, 118 in Homs, 76 in Raqqah, 103 in Daraa, 122 in Hama, 106 in Deir ez-Zour, 8 in Hasakah and 4 in Latakia.
The number of attacks clearly shows how inhumanity has reigned in Syria, the attacks also mean that a total of 528 civilians have been killed, including 171 children. Even last month, Virgina Gamba, the UN special representative for children in armed conflicts, said that more than 7000 people have lost their lives in Syria since 2011. The UN had also reported that the mass killing has led to some 2.1 million Syrian children withdrawing from schools in Syria.
Syria is facing the attacks, and the civilian count is going up continuously. Ironically, the education system and the schools destroyed in the war only point out to the failure of big bodies like UN, which have failed to prevent the humanitarian crisis.
