Syria needs to heed warnings from the international community about the torture of children, and about the crackdown on anti-government protesters in general. The country is in a delicate state with violence running rampant. Thousands upon thousands have died in this battle, including many children at home, school or in detention centers. These children are being detained in inhumane places, tortured with cigarettes, electrocution, punches and more. Just last week 11 members of a family, including five children, were executed in their home.
This amount of violence needs to stop. These human rights violations need to come to an end. They are at a point of no return, and the international community has had enough. The United Nations is drafting a “European-Arab draft resolution endorsing an Arab League plan for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to give up power,” according to the article.
If this comes to fruition, hopefully the Syrian nation can make a swift transition and usher in a new age in its history, where protest is not met with violence.
