  • believe a survey of Syrians aged 18 to 25 carried out by the Red Cross is highlighting the cost of 10 years of war for the country's youth.

  • The Red Cross surveyed 1400 young Syrians, including those exiled in Lebanon and Germany.

  • It's found 50% of those asked have lost a friend or family member in the conflict, which has killed hundreds of thousands displaced millions more.

  • Reuters spoke to Fabrizio Carboni from the Red Cross.

  • When you drill into how many parents were killed or wounded there, you reach the result that one out of six Syrian, um, had one of the parents either killed of or wounded rebuild.

  • The country is on their shoulder, and obviously it's quite unfair when you think that they've spent the childhood.

  • They spend their time as teenager either directly in the conflict, or they just absorb the consequences of the conflict as refugees, uh, in neighboring country, but also here, uh, in Europe.

  • The report coincides with the 10th anniversary of the start of the protests against President Bashar al Assad's rule that turned into a full scale civil war.

  • Assad's military has now regained control of most of the country with Russian and Iranian help.

  • The report also shows nearly half of young Syrians have lost their income because of the conflict, and almost eight in 10 have reported struggling to afford food and other essentials.

  • Women have also been hit particularly hard, with almost 30% in Syria reporting no income at all to support their family.
