Syria, SDF and UN to protect children from violence

SDF and UN sign an agreement to protect children from violence. Kurdish forces issue new rules prohibiting the enrollment of children, to transform schools into bases and to store war material there unless it is to protect them

The SDF have signed an agreement with the UN to protect children in eastern Syria from violence and military conflict. Kurdistan 24 reports. By the way, an order has been issued that prohibits the use of schools as bases and to place war equipment near these buildings, unless they serve to protect them. Furthermore, it is strictly forbidden to recruit youngsters and work is being done to make schools become a safe environment for the learning of children, the hardest hit first by the war against Isis and then by the Turkish offensives in the region. Not surprisingly, at least 150 schools in Tall Abyad and Ras al-Ayn have been closed from October 2019 to January 2020. Another 60 in Hasaka and Qamishli, on the other hand, have been temporarily transformed into emergency accommodation for displaced persons.

Meanwhile, the war on Isis intensifies in eastern Syria. SDF and Inherent Resolve organize new raids against Islamic State leaders. In addition, guards are trained to protect oil fields from Daesh attacks. Objective: to remove the main source of funding from IS

Meanwhile, in eastern Syria, the SDF are intensifying the war on ISIS together with Inherent Resolve. On the one hand, targeted raids continue to neutralize the leaders of the Islamic State. On the other hand, however, Kurdish forces are training with the Coalition to protect oil infrastructures. Objective: to block the theft of crude by Daesh militiamen, used as a primary source of funding for survival and operations on the ground. In the past few hours, 250 specialists have graduated, who will be sent to the Critical Petroleum Infrastructure (CPI) sites, to which others will soon be added. The courses, in fact, continue and are reformulated according to the latest threats. The courses, however, will be implemented by further activities, of which, however, no details have been provided at the moment.
