Their visit comes on the same day Save the Children issued a report saying that more than 2 million children have been afflicted by trauma, malnutrition or disease during the Syrian civil war.
The war has interfered with vaccination efforts across the country, the group said. About two-thirds of Syrian children lack vaccinations for preventable diseases, according to the group's report.
In addition, one in three children have been injured in the warfare, the report said.
Meanwhile, in Syria, the European Union said Wednesday that an employee of its delegation in Syria died in a rocket attack in Derava, a Damascus suburb.
Ahmad Shihadeh died while providing humanitarian assistance to residents of the city, where he also lived, the EU said.
