Up to 3,000 Isis children living in ‘extremely dire conditions’…

01) Up to 3,000 Isis children living in ‘extremely dire conditions’

“As many as 3,000 children born into Islamic State families are being housed in camps in north-east Syria, Unicef estimates, with many younger than six years old and living in “extremely dire conditions”.

Unicef’s regional director for the Middle East, Geert Cappelaere, said many of the children in Syria were unwanted in the camp, adding to their vulnerability. There has so far been little interest from third party countries to offer resettlement.

“We estimate that close to 3,000 children of foreign nationality are living in extremely dire conditions,” he said. “There are many more children of Syrian and Iraqi parents, unfortunately with the same Isis label, many of them younger than six years old. These are children, not terrorists. These are children entitled to a childhood, deserving a fair chance in life.”

The results of religious extremism…

…This is among the saddest testimonies, of how badly off the rails things can get.

Those poor kids.

    “These are children, not terrorists”. Then I’m certain one will be going to the Geert’s home, correct?

    “They should never be separated from their families”. Oh, guess not. Clever how that was smuggled in…

    You can’t have it both ways. Either the kids stay with their parents, right where they are, or they can be adopted into families that haven’t recently joined religious wars against the rest of the world.
