Bombing campaign in Aleppo 'a war against children'

Stephen Crabb speaking in the Commons on Tuesday.

Former cabinet minister Stephen Crabb has labelled the bombings in Aleppo as a "war against children".

Speaking at an emergency debate into the humanitarian crisis in the country, the Pembrokeshire MP said: "Almost half of the casualties since the current attacks began have been children, as bombs and mortars have landed on hospitals and broken through underground bunkers which sometimes also serve as schools.

"The images that we should hold before us are the ones we've seen over the last fortnight of the lifeless, dusty, broken-limbed bodies of children being removed from bombed out buildings and piles of rubble."
