With the aim of eliminating Hamas, Israel has killed more than 13,000 children by carrying out an all-out and indiscriminate attack on Gaza since October 7. Also, the children who survive are severely malnourished. These children are so weak that they have no energy left to cry. The United Nations Children’s Organization UNICEF reported this information.

“Several thousand more children are injured or we can’t even determine where they are,” UNICEF Executive Director Catherine Russell said on Sunday. Many children may still be trapped under the rubble… We have never seen so many children die in any other conflict in the world.

He said, I have visited the wards of children who are suffering from severe anemia and malnutrition. The entire ward is completely silent. Because the children there are so weak that they don’t even have the strength left to cry.

Catherine Russell says more than two million Palestinians have been starved since Israel’s “genocidal” war began. As a result, getting humanitarian aid trucks there was a huge bureaucratic challenge.

According to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA), one in three children under the age of two in northern Gaza is now severely malnourished. The organization also warned that more than five months of Israeli occupation has led to famine.
