"All parties must stop the shelling and use of explosive weapons in populated areas, as well as terror attacks," reported a news agency citing Leila Zerrougui, UN Special Representative for Children and Armed Conflict.

"Safe and impartial delivery of humanitarian assistance that is so critically needed must be guaranteed by all parties. Civilians must not be taken hostage by belligerents," Zerrougui said. She also called on the international community to continue to help Syrian children and their families.
