Children are the gift of God. They are the most innocent creatures who are cute and harmless, but when that innocence becomes the victim of physical violence, mental and emotional abuse, it is very bad for the entire world. Involvement and use of minors in conflict, murdering, sexual violence, abduction, assault on schools and hospitals, and denial of humanitarian access are the six most common violations.
The United Nations General Assembly, "appalled at a large number of innocent Palestinian and Lebanese children victims of Israel's acts of aggression," declared 4 June, every year as the International Day of Innocent Children Victims of Aggression on 19 August 1982, during an emergency special session on the question of Palestine.
The intention of International Day of Innocent Children Victims of Aggression is to recognise the suffering of children who are victims of physical, mental, and emotional abuse all around the world.
In many conflict zones, the number of violations committed against children has increased in recent years. More needs to be done to protect the 250 million children who live in conflict-affected nations and communities. It is important to safeguard children from violent extremists, to promote international humanitarian and human rights law, and to hold perpetrators of child rights breaches accountable.
Every child's innocence must be safeguarded for them to appreciate every moment of their youth. Life is far too big for us to have to deal with difficulties in our early stages. Physical, emotional, and mental abuse can have a significant and long-term harmful influence on them. Children's rights protection and promotion have intrinsic preventative capacity.
