U.N. gets reports of child soldiers with Syria rebels
March 26th, 2012
(Reuters) – Syrian rebels fighting to oust President Bashar al-Assad have been accused of using children as fighters in violation of international conventions banning the recruitment of child soldiers, a senior U.N. official said on Monday.
The U.N. concern about the possibility that Syria’s opposition may be using child soldiers follows last week’s report from the New York-based rights group Human Rights Watch that armed Syrian opposition groups have kidnapped, tortured and executed members of supporters of Assad and members of his security forces.
“We are receiving allegations of children with the Free Syrian Army,” Radhika Coomaraswamy, U.N. special representative for children and armed conflict, said in response to a question about Syria’s rebels. She gave no details.
“We haven’t been able to verify or check” the veracity of those allegations, Coomaraswamy added.
Earlier this month the International Criminal Court in The Hague convicted Congolese warlord Thomas Lubanga Dyilo of using child soldiers in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Link: http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/03/26/us-syria-un-idUSBRE82P0W220120326
The video posted below towards the end of the recording clearly shows several children, armed and kitted, holding and waving war weaponry.
The video depicts the announcement of the formation of numerous insurgent brigades some of whom seem to include foreign fighters, including the so called ‘Bashar the Dog batallion.’
NewsRescue earlier published about al-Mahdi al-Harati, a surprising young Irish man in his 30s, who was hired allegedly by the CIA and is actually believed to be CIA, to lead the overthrow of the Libyan government.
After he toppled the Libyan government, al-Harati who was then deputy commander of the Libya Benghazi army, returned to Ireland and his Irish wife.
He is again according to our reports, leading the death squads insurgency in Syria, and organizing mercenaries from Libya and other countries for the war.
Recently the Syrian rebels were pictured tossing bodies down from rooftops in Syria. German intel last month, reported that many are frank Al-Qaeda agents. See: German Intelligence: al-Qaeda Behind Terror in Syria

As is happening in Mali, Nigeria and Algeria where the NATO-Arab league support of an Al-Qaeda overthrow of the Libyan government has led to instability and regional terror, including regime change in Mali. The future for Syria’s neighbors as this terrorist operated insurgency is heavily backed by western parties and the Arab block, is dreadful.
Neighboring Iraq is already experiencing the highest levels of terrorism with some of the most deadly bombings in its history, in the last month.
