Death of two World Vision supported children by unexploded ordnance in Northern Syria is unacceptable
World Vision is horrified to learn of the death of two displaced boys in the vicinity of Syria’s Idlib Al-Abrar camp, who were killed by unexploded remnants of war. The children, age 7 and 11, were playing after school with a metal object they had found 500 meters away from the camp, and brought home. The object detonated as they played with it. While the two brothers have sadly lost their lives, their three sisters have also been injured.
