UN Agency Chief: More Children Killed in Gaza War Than in Four Years of Global Conflict

Philippe Lazzarini, head of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), has made a startling revelation regarding the toll of Israel's war against Palestinians in Gaza. In a statement, Lazzarini emphasized that the number of children killed in just over four months in Gaza surpasses the total child casualties from four years of conflicts worldwide.

The staggering disparity highlights the disproportionate impact of the ongoing violence on Gaza's children, who are bearing the brunt of the conflict's brutality. According to reports, over 12,300 children lost their lives in Gaza between October and February, far surpassing the global toll of child casualties in conflicts.

Lazzarini condemned the war as an assault on the childhood and future of Palestinian children, emphasizing the urgent need for international intervention to protect civilian lives in the region.

Meanwhile, recent reports from Gaza underscore the dire humanitarian situation, with Israeli military forces reportedly targeting desperate Palestinians awaiting life-saving aid. The indiscriminate attacks on aid lines have resulted in the deaths of hundreds of civilians, exacerbating the already dire situation in the besieged territory.

The ongoing blockade imposed by Israel has further compounded the humanitarian crisis in Gaza, pushing thousands of families to the brink of starvation and exacerbating the suffering of innocent children caught in the crossfire.
