Moreover, the war in Syria is characterized by multiple humanitarian law violations.In specific, the current situation goes against humanitarian law that forbids direct or indiscriminate attacks on civilians, the destruction of hospitals, and requires all parties to the conflict to grant access to humanitarian aid.For black Americans, having the ability to code-switch could help you get that promotion, make your case to a judge, or leave a police encounter unscathed.But changing how you speak isn't always enough to get around racism.Education systems have come under attack in Syria, as armed groups tend to see the targeting of schools, schoolchildren, and teachers as military strategy.In addition, sexual violence against civilian populations has been characteristic of the Syrian conflict.Aramaic is still spoken in two forms, the Syriac used by Assyrians and Western Neo-Aramaic used by a few inhabitants in the villages of Bakh'a, Jubb'adin and Ma'loula. Overall population density is about 118.3 inhabitants per square kilometre (306/sq mi).
Before the start of the civil war in March 2011, Syria was a middle-income country that was able to adequately provide for its people.
There are also numerous human rights violations amounting to war crimes or crimes against humanity.
In 2015, UNICEF identified 1500 individual cases of grave violations of children’s rights in Syria, among which over 60% were cases of murders and maiming following the use of explosive weapons in inhabited civilian areas.
Moreover, 6 million Syrian children are in need of humanitarian aid, and more than 2 million do not have access to it as they live in areas difficult to reach or under siege.
In armed conflict, children are often deliberately targeted or not protected adequately — or both.
