The humanitarian said that her daughters ‘asked to come’ with her to meet with Syrians displaced from the country’s on-going civil war which began nearly seven years ago, according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

She said: ‘They’ve spent time today speaking and playing with children their own age who have been forced from their homes, whose family members have been killed or have disappeared.

‘Who are struggling with trauma and illness, but who at the end of the day are just children, with the same hopes and rights as children in any other nation.’

According to PEOPLE magazine, the visit was Shiloh’s third trip and Zahara’s first time visiting a refugee camp, at their tender ages of 11 and 13.

Angelina had landed in Paris last week, in order to film a new perfume commercial for Guerlain.  

Earlier this week, the beauty was also seen arriving to the press junket for her movie, First They Killed My Father in New York City.

However, Angelina – who served as director for the Cambodian drama – was one of the several big contenders snubbed at the 90th Annual Academy Awards after nominations were announced last week.

Despite garnering critical acclaim, First They Killed My Father didn’t make the list of nods in the Best Foreign Language Film category.

Jolie’s passion-project for Netflix had been selected as the Cambodian entry and despite not being shortlisted for the category, fans were still hoping for a surprise after it was lauded by critics and received a Golden Globe nomination.
