A report by Unicef states that the Syrian war has had the most devastating psychological effects on Syrian children with 910 killed. These figures undermine the thinking that the war is losing steam. The report states that the various physical and/or emotional trauma and abuse the children have gone through would create havoc as they grow up and become adults due to unavailability of education, healthcare and food.
