UNICEF has taken the unusual step of issuing a blank statement in the aftermath of the latest violence in Syria.

The blank statement has been sent to all media outlets. See it reproduced below.

 

Statement

The War ON Children in Syria

 

Reports of mass casualties among children in Eastern Ghouta and Damascus

 

From Geert Cappelaere, UNICEF Regional Director for the Middle East and North Africa

AMMAN, 20 February 2018- “No words will do justice to the children killed, their mothers, their fathers and their loved ones”[1].

.”

ENDs-

 

[1] UNICEF is issuing this blank statement. We no longer have the words to describe children’s suffering and our outrage.

Do those inflicting the suffering still have words to justify their barbaric acts?
