Protecting children in Syria: an innovative video linking international humanitarian norms to Quranic verses to raise awareness among armed non-State actors

The crisis in Syria is now into its 9th year and the situation is alarming: use of children in hostilities by all sides of the conflict is regularly reported, many children have been killed, and almost all armed non-State actors (ANSAs) involved in the conflict have recruited children from both local and refugee/internally displaced communities. 

As part of a video series promoting international humanitarian norms by linking them to Quranic verses, Geneva Call and its partner on its Syria project Afaq Academy produced this poignant video addressing the issue of child protection, specifically child recruitment, which is still common practice among many ANSAs. 

The video will be used during training sessions for ANSAs and local CSOs and will be disseminated on social media across Syria.
