That the protection of children during armed conflict is a responsibility of the international community, because it represents protection for the future of all humankind. The international community has not forgotten this importance and has worked to provide protection and care for children. However, we see in various parts of the world violations committed by children during armed conflict, whether international or non-international, among the most victims of these conflicts.With regard to violations against children during non-international armed conflicts, there are three very serious violations: recruitment as combatants in armed groups or government forces, and sexual exploitation of them in the worst forms, which leaves a very severe psychological impact on children, And eliminate their innocence and childhood, and the torture they may be subjected to by the parties to the conflict in brutal ways, and this is one of the most serious violations against children.The increase in non-international armed conflicts, the resulting serious violations against children, and the suffering of the children of Iraq, Syria and the world are tragic despite the protection provided by the rules of international law, but the violations continue. The problem of research is on the continuing violations of children in non-international conflicts and the protection provided by the rules of international law, and whether they are sufficient to protect this category.
