Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

15 Million children caught up in major conflicts: UNICEF

An estimated 230 million children live in countries and areas plagued by armed conflicts.

This year “has been one of horror, fear and despair for millions of children, as worsening conflicts across the world saw them exposed to extreme violence and its consequences, forcibly recruited and deliberately targeted by warring groups,” UNICEF said.

“This has been a devastating year for millions of children,” said UNICEF Executive Director. “Children have been killed while studying in the classroom and while sleeping in their beds; they have been orphaned, kidnapped, tortured, recruited, raped and even sold as slaves. Never in recent memory have so many children been subjected to such unspeakable brutality.”

As many as 15 million children are caught up in violent conflicts in the Central African Republic, [Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Nigeria, Pakistan, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen,] Iraq, South Sudan, the State of Palestine, Syria and Ukraine – including those internally displaced or living as refugees.

  • In the Central African Republic, 2.3 million children are affected by the conflict, up to 10,000 children are believed to have been recruited by armed groups over the last year, and more than 430 children have been killed and maimed – three times as many as in 2013
  • In Gaza, 54,000 children were left homeless as a result of the 50-day conflict during the summer that also saw 538 children killed, and more than 3,370 injured.
  • In Syria, with more than 7.3 million children affected by the conflict including 1.7 million child refugees, the United Nations verified at least 35 attacks on schools in the first nine months of the year, which killed 105 children and injured nearly 300 others. In Iraq, where an estimated 2.7 million children are affected by conflict, at least 700 children are believed to have been maimed, killed or even executed this year. In both countries, children have been victims of, witnesses to and even perpetrators of increasingly brutal and extreme violence.
  • In South Sudan, an estimated 235,000 children under five are suffering from severe acute malnutrition. Almost 750,000 children have been displaced and more than 320,000 are living as refugees.  According to UN verified data, more than 600 children have been killed and over 200 maimed this year, and around 12,000 children are now being used by armed forces and groups.

Iraq Carnage Negates All Human Values

Iraq Carnage: 110 People Killed in 36 Hrs

1 Policeman was beheaded, 14 people killed by gunfire, including 7 family members, 15 murdered by IEDs, and 80 were killed in 18 bomb explosions over the past 36 hours.

The monthly death toll for August so far stands at 823 civilians killed, and as many as 2,000 others wounded.

The latest killings bloodied the cities of Baghdad, Mosul, Latifiya, Falluja, Baiji, Qayyara and Jalawla, according to reports.

Saudis, Qataris and other Arab regimes that help perpetuate the sectarian slaughter in Iraq and Syria must realize that they will NOT escape the global “de-Islamization” unscathed.
