In schools in Aleppo, students are taught how to move around safely in the city. They are told, among other things, that they must avoid the alleys and stay in the middle of the road to avoid stepping on something, which can cost them life. Mine hazard lurks in many neighborhoods. A few years ago, the advice was that the children were to walk close to the buildings, because if they went in the middle of the road, they were easy victims of snipers. The times are changing, but the dangers persist. Every day, on average, three children die of war-related actions.
