 Baghdad, (Reuters), 22.06.2017 -  More than 5 million children are in urgent need of aid in Iraq, the United Nations said on Thursday.  

 
“Across Iraq, children continue to witness sheer horror and unimaginable violence,” the United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF) said in a statement.   


“They have been killed, injured, abducted and forced to shoot and kill in one of the most brutal wars in recent history.”   In Mosul, children are being deliberately targeted and killed by Islamic State militants to punish families and deter them from fleeing.   


International organizations estimate that more than 100,000 civilians, of whom half are children, are trapped in extremely dangerous conditions in the Old City centre. More than 1,000 children have been killed and more than 1,100 wounded or maimed since 2014, it said.
