Pictures of Syrian children holding Pokemon signs, with pleas for the outside world to save them, have been circulating the internet.
Each picture showing a child in a different part of Syria, with their location included, was shared by the Revolutionary Forces of Syria media office (RFS).
An RFS spokesman told the Independent: “We want to raise awareness and draw attention to the plight of Syrian children in besieged areas and the suffering of Syrian people who are attacked and killed by the Assad regime and its allies.”
Over the past week alone air strikes from the US and Russia have killed hundreds of civilians in Syria. This while the country’s population are also under threat from President Assad’s forces and Isis.
Children are under threat from malnourishment and disease as much as air strikes, and between two and three million Syrian kids no longer have access to education.
A whole generation will grow up not knowing their homeland.
