SYRIA: GRAVE FEARS FOR 175,000 CHILDREN WHO HAVE FLED DEIR EZ-ZOUR

November 3rd, 2017 - The Syrian government today seized the last part of the Syrian city of Deir Ez-zour from Islamic State. The escalation in fighting has pushed hundreds of thousands in recent weeks and months.

The camps for the displaced are overwhelmed and conditions are woefully inadequate. Save the Children is advocating for greater support to all those in need and is calling for urgent action to be taken to get children, many of whom have been out of school for years, back in the classroom so they can start to recover from the traumatic things they have seen.

SYRIA FIGHTING FORCES HUNDREDS OF SCHOOLS TO CLOSE

An escalation in fighting has forced hundreds of schools across Syria to suspend classes over the past two weeks, with teachers sending children home in terror as bombs and shells fall nearby.

Vital education and psychological support for tens of thousands of children has been disrupted as a result of what is reported to be the deadliest violence this year. At least three schools have been attacked in the past week, injuring children and destroying classrooms.
