UNICEF said attacks on children in conflict zones around the world reached a shocking scale in 2017.

Children have become frontline targets in conflicts around the world, used as human shields, killed, maimed and recruited to fight.

UNICEF said rape, forced marriage, abduction and enslavement have become standard tactics in conflicts from Syria and Yemen to Nigeria and Myanmar.

Millions more children become indirect casualties of these conflicts, suffering from malnutrition, disease and trauma as basic services including access to food, water, sanitation and health are denied, damaged or destroyed in the fighting.
