A baby dies in Baghdad attacks

Statement from Hamida Lasseko, UNICEF Representative in Iraq

BAGHDAD, 18 November 2020 – “We are very sad that yesterday’s attack in Baghdad killed a baby and injured several people.

“Homes are meant to be the safest place for children. It is a place where they are protected and surrounded with the love and care of their families.

“Violence has been the norm in Iraq for nearly four decades now with children always bearing the brunt.

“We call on all parties in Iraq to protect children at all times and refrain from attacking civilians, civilian infrastructure and populated areas including people’s homes.

“It is time that children in Iraq get the respite they so much deserve. It is time for violence to come to an end once and for all in a country that has been paying heavily over the past 40 years.
