This war been going on since 2011. Kids are also involved in the war, and not just in the crossfire, but actually fighting in it! The different parties don't even care because they just give these innocent children guns and let them fight. They obviously aren't thinking about the fact that they are just kids.
The effects of the war on Syria are of course the kids getting involved but others are chemical weapons being used. Which is an international law that they are not to be used in war. The most recent chemical weapon disaster was April 4th. at least 70 people were killed and at least 20 of which were kids. This just shows the disasters going on over there.
