It goes without saying that children are suffering from psychological trauma since the raids; witness accounts even recall heavily-armed men wearing masks were pointing a gun at children and shouting, “target person spotted”.
A girl who was victimised by the raids stated that “I never felt so unsafe, especially in my own home. The police refused to allow me to use the toilet with the door closed, forcing me to use the toilet with police officers watching. These raids destroyed my life.”
Another boy recalled that “He was also wearing a mask so I only saw his eyes. Initially, my first thought was that he was a terrorist”.
Additionally, parents have reported that their children start screaming and crying in the middle of the night, while the children have said that the police took away their pocket money and electronic devices, meaning they could no longer continue with distance-learning, depriving them their right to education.
