Statement by UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake on multiple attacks on schools in Syria
NEW YORK, 27 October 2016 – “Yesterday, when a school compound in Syria was repeatedly attacked, killing dozens of children and teachers, we thought we had seen the depths of depravity.
“Today’s reports of attacks on schools in Douma and western Aleppo should deepen our disgust and outrage.
“This brings the toll to five schools hit since October 11.
“Attacking schools … killing children … is simply inhuman.
“If the perpetrators cannot find their own sense of humanity, they should heed the condemnation of the world."
