The number of children killed by the Israeli army in these two months is estimated to be close to 10,000, and many remain under the rubble with no chance of survival.
Preliminary statistics from the Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Observatory confirm that the aggressive actions of “Israel” in the Gaza Strip took the lives of 9,077 children and infants during the two months of the genocidal war.
According to the report of the Observatory, the total number of deaths due to heavy air and artillery attacks by Israel is estimated at more than 23 thousand.
He also warned that hundreds of children were still trapped under the rubble of their homes, some of which had collapsed for weeks, with little chance of survival, alive or dead.
In this context, Adele Khudr, Regional Director of UNICEF for the Middle East and North Africa, stated that Gaza is the most dangerous place in the world for children, because the Zionist regime not only kills them and leaves them injured , but also uses other methods to eliminate it.
Nearly a million children were forcibly removed from their homes, pushed to the south of the Palestinian enclave, into very small and overcrowded supposedly safe areas.
In these shelters they have little access to water, food or protection, and face the risk of contracting respiratory infections and water-borne diseases.
Therefore, the lives of children in Gaza are also threatened by drought, malnutrition and disease, other resources of war criticized by the Regional Director of UNICEF.
This Saturday, according to official Palestinian figures, the number of martyrs confirmed in health institutions exceeded 17,400, including more than 7,800 children and 6,100 women.
