Assad Regime Sexual Violence Against Children

The list of alleged crimes committed by Syrian forces “include murder, torture, rape and other forms of sexual violence” were applied equally to adults and children in places of detention.

Children in government custody have reportedly been beaten with metal cables, whips and wooden and metal batons, and suffered electric shock, mock executions, cigarette burns, sleep deprivation and solitary confinement, and sexual violence, including rape and threats of rape.

Children are abused by Assad soldiers and recruited for combat and support roles, as well as for conducting military operations by rebels.
