At least 96 children have been killed and 223 have been injured in Eastern Aleppo since Friday, UNICEF.
Health system is incapable of treating the injured, leaving children with low chances of survival too often to die due to limited capacity and supplies.
UNICEF Deputy Executive Director Justin Forsyth said: “The children of Aleppo are trapped in a living nightmare.”
“There are no words left to describe the suffering they are experiencing, he added.”
According to UNICEF, around 30 doctors left on the ground with barely any equipment or emergency medicine to treat the injured.
“Nothing can justify such assaults on children and such total disregard for human life. The suffering – and the shock among children – is definitely the worst we have seen,” stressed Forsyth.
