A statement by UNICEF following the alleged use of chemical weapons on civilians in Syria: 

"The reports of attacks on civilians, presumably including children, on the outskirts of Damascus are deeply disturbing.

"Such horrific acts should be a reminder to all the parties and all who have influence on them that this terrible conflict has gone on far too long and children have suffered more than enough.

"Children must be protected, and those who fail to protect them will be held accountable."
