Footage from terrorists’ media of a child filmed launching an artillery shell at SAA positions.
Now what will happen when SAA conducts counter-battery fire and take out the artillery piece and its operators? What will happen if these kids got killed by an SyAAF or RuAF while returning fire?!
Who put these kids is jeopardy? If these kids get killed, who truly killed them? Where is the UN? Where are the human rights activists?!
And finally, for all of those in the West wanting the Syrian command to cease operations and negotiate with terrorists, would you take the parents of these kids into your countries? Would you live in the same neighborhood as these terrorists? Would you send your kids to the same schools as these kids?!
If you answer no to any of the above, then stand aside and let SAA fight terrorism on your behalf when some western and arab governments created them and continue to fund them.
You can be sure that SAA units are doing all they can to prevent any civilian casualties that can be prevented.
Even with all the situations the militants and terrorists are putting these children in; these children are not a lost cause, they don’t deserve death whatsoever and there is an active rehabilitation program for such war casualties. These children are not the enemy, these children are created by the enemy, and they are the result of nine years of war, which in this case counts for the majority of their lives.
Remember, Syrian soldiers are not driven by hate to fight this war, they are driven by their constitutional duties toward the Syrian people, and their country to defend and enforce the law and although some of these people may have lost their ways, but until today, those who surrender will face justice according to the Syrian criminal law and will not be treated as prisoners of war. Even during active battles, a chance to save lives is always given and preferred by the Syrian command.
