UNICEF indicated the need to promptly assist the victims of the conflict, among them some 250,000 children who need mental health and physical protection services.

In a communique, UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore requested to make possible that personnel and essential supplies, including fuel, medical supplies, first-aid packages and Covid-19 vaccines, can enter the country.

The humanitarian situation in that Palestinian territory is moving towards a deplorable state of irreversible -or at least very difficult- recovery, as the Tel Aviv army’s attacks are mainly concentrated in urban areas, where civilian facilities, among them schools, housing and medical posts, are destroyed.

UN sources in Gaza reported that the Israeli aviation in its more than 1,600 totally or partially attacks has destroyed 448 buildings: 132 of them were left in ruins and 316 were partially damaged, among them six hospitals and nine medical centers.

It is currently estimated that 52,000 Palestinians are taking refuge in UN-run schools in Gaza, as an alternative to survive the most intense fights occurred in the last seven years.
