 The National Committee to Investigate Human Rights Violations Claims (NCHRVA) concluded Friday closed hearing sessions with victim children on major violations of the six human rights during armed disputes.

Member of the NCHRVA Ishraq al-Maqtari made it clear to Saba that the committee commenced its sessions early this November and listened to 12 children, who are victims of torture, disfigurement, rapping, kidnapping and recruitment.

The committee listened also to their parents, said al-Maqtari, pointing out that the sessions included testimonies from children and their relatives on details of violation incidents and perpetrators and the testimonies unearthed the violations and names and bodies standing behind them.

She pointed out that the committee investigated 661 victim children since November 2019 until November 2020, expressing concern over increasing numbers of violations suffered by children.
