To mark the occasion, the U.N. Children’s Fund (Unicef) has an appropriately depressing statistic to share: An estimated 3.7 million Syrian children — 1 in 3 of all Syrian children — have been born since the conflict began.
That number includes 306,000 children born as refugees. That’s more children than the population of Pittsburgh who have never known their home country.
The new report also estimates that of 1,500 of what the U.N. calls “grave violations” against children in 2015, more than 60% were children being killed or maimed thanks to explosions. More than a third of them were killed on their way to or from school.
