UN report censures rising child abuse cases by terrorist groups in Syria

“The suffering endured by the children in the Syrian Arab Republic since the outset of the conflict, as documented in this report, is unspeakable and unacceptable,” UN chief Ban Ki-moon said in the report. The report is dated January 27, but was only posted online on Tuesday.

It looks at the timeframe between March 1, 2011 and November 15, 2013, and includes detailed accounts of the foreign-backed militants committing grave violations against children.

The UN has reported and blamed the militants for child abuse cases in the past, but this is the first report revealing that the situation is worsening in the region. The organization has raised the issue of the increasing recruitment of children for terrorist combat operations.

“Of particular concern were cases of recruitment or attempted…

`Government and Opposition in Syria Has Failed to Agree List’s for Exchange of Prisoner’s’

#AceNewsServices says `Lists for Exchange of Syria prisoners not agreed upon yet’

Unrest in DamascusThe government and the opposition in Syria had failed to agree on the lists for the exchange of prisoners, Gatilov said.

“The opposition has handed the list of persons detained by the government. But the government has also requested the opposition to produce a list of persons who are detained by them. So far, the opposition has not presented such a list. But we believe that this issue could be resolved with the good will of both parties,” the senior diplomat said.

Exchange of prisoners between the government and opposition forces is considered as one of the stages at the negotiations of the parties. This issue was discussed at the first round of the inter-Syrian discussions in the framework of the Geneva-2 conference. Russia, the USA and the UN took part in this work, too.

#AceWorldNews says with the start of the #Geneva2Convention just around the corner on January 22, this is not what we want to hear………………………………………………………..

EuroNews reports as and according to Damascus had agreed to hand over some of its most deadly toxins from the Syrian port of Latakia on December 31, but failed to show.

Officials from the ‘Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons’ had expected the deadline to be missed.

“We understand that a number of factors have added up which have made the Syrian authorities unable to meet this December 31 deadline – the poor weather in certain parts of Syria is one of these factors and, of course, the volatility of the security situation,” explained OPCWspokesman Christian Chartier.

The December date was supposed to have been the first milestone of a deal brokered by the US and Russia to rid Syria of its chemical weapons arsenal by June 2014.

In a separate development, an anti-President Bashar al-Assad monitoring group based in Britain estimates that at least 130,000 people have been killed in the conflict since it began in March 2011.

#AceWorldNews says #Syria war does not seem to end for the people, as the pain goes on and on everyday, and the children find themselves with out either a mother or father.

And according to PressTV the West does not want Syrian crisis to end: 
The West has no intention of helping to resolve the Syrian crisis as the dilemma has been created by Western states to protect Israel, a political analyst tells Press TV.

“I think they (the West) are just giving a whole lot of lip service to wanting to resolve the situation in Syria. I also believe they have [taken] Syria exactly where they wanted,” said Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich in a Saturday interview.

She noted that Syria’s military might, which has long been considered as a strong force capable of standing against Israel, is being engaged with terrorists and thugs in the country.

“Instead of Syria being able to protect itself from outside dangers, danger has been sent inside Syria, chaos has been created to basically weaken the Syrian military and the United Sates and the Western countries are fully, 100 percent behind this,” Sepahpour pointed out.

Syria has been gripped by deadly unrest since March 2011. According to reports, the Western powers and their regional allies — especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey — are supporting the militants operating inside Syria.

According to the United Nations, more than 100,000 people have been killed and a total of 7.8 million of others displaced due to the violence.
