Children killed by violence in Myanmar is rising.

Children killed by violence in Myanmar is rising.

The UN Secretary General's annual report states that the human rights of underage children in Myanmar are still severely violated.

Burmese children's human rights violations are worse in 2022 than in 2021.

The statement said that these actions were mostly committed by the Burmese Military Council forces, and other ethnic armed groups were also involved.

In 2022, there were 521 cases of children being killed and injured, and 377 cases were committed by the military council.

The nine cases committed by the PDF forces and the rest of the more than 130 cases were not mentioned as to who committed them.

Schools and hospitals were attacked 105 times, 66 times by the military council. The PDF said it could not confirm who carried out the 12 attacks and the rest.

It has also been reported that there is continued recruitment of underage child soldiers in both the Military Council Army and the ethnic armed forces.

In 2022, there were 112 members of the military council, 35 people from the BGF army, and 49 Kachin Liberation Army KIA. It is said that the PDF has recruited 18 child soldiers.

The Myanmar Military Council is responsible for children, the UN Secretary-General said he was concerned because civilians, including aid workers, were being targeted.

The statement also called for the release of detained children and for all armed forces, including the military council, to respect the rights of children.
