Children in war-torn Syria are "living in fear" and are suffering from a wide range of ailments including trauma and hearing loss due to constant bombardments according to the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF).

Millions of people have fled Syria as a result of the more than five years of civil conflict there, but many still remain.

UNICEF says it is especially concerned for the long-term development of children.

Isabelle Dupuis has been speaking to Hanaa Singer, UNICEF’s representative in the country.
