Child mistakes camera for gun, surrenders herself

It's known to all that wars taking place across the globe claim innocent lives and cause mass destruction. However, none of us might have ever given a serious thought to the impact it has on the minds of innocent children.

This image of a Syrian kid in a surrendering position reveals the painful impact of wars on a child's mind.

When a photojournalist approached this Syrian kid and wanted to capture her cute little innocent image in her camera, this kid mistook the camera for a gun and raised her hands, surrendering herself.

Ever since the Syrian Civil War broke out in 2011, the country has become one of the least peaceful countries in the world.

Not only the grown-ups but even naive kids these days are aware of wars and its aftermath.
