At least 851 children were recruited into fighting - a 157 percent increase above 2015 - and at least 652 were killed. The death figure only includes those formally verified though, meaning the real number is likely to be a lot higher. As UNICEF writes, no child is spared the horror of the war in Syria.

This chart shows the number of grave violations committed against children by all parties in the Syrian conflict in 2016.
