Child Protection Office returns 70 children to their families

The Child Protection Office’s main task is receiving complaints about the recruitment of children into the SDF and ISF, and coordinating with them to get children out of the military field and return them to their families.
Khaled Jabr, joint head of the Child Protection Office in al-Hasakah district, said that the office receives complaints from parents and coordinates with the Archives of Military Forces to return children to their families and then to be sent to school.
“Since establishing of the office, we have handed over nearly 70 children (under-18) to their families after verifying their data and documentation,” Jabr said.
Based on the agreement signed between the SDF and the United Nations in 2019 on the non-recruitment of children in military conflicts, the Autonomous Administration of Northern and Eastern Syria has established eight major child protection offices as well as branch offices in Qamishli, al-Hasaka, Al-Shahba, Deir Ezzor, Manbij, Kobane, Tal Abyad and Raqqa.
