UN, NGO: Children in Gaza in disastrous situation as death toll soars 3,000

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) says that the situation of children in Gaza is catastrophic as thousands of children have reportedly been killed more than three weeks into the Hamas-Israel war.

Save the Children Organization said on Sunday, referencing Palestinian health authorities, that at least 3,324 children have been killed in Gaza since October 7, more than the total killed in conflicts around the world in every year since 2019.

“A ceasefire is the only way to ensure their safety. The international community must put people before politics,” the NGO’s country director for the Palestinian territory said in a statement.
