UNICEF says, “Gaza is the most dangerous place for children”

Ramallah, Dec 2 (Prensa Latina) The Gaza Strip is currently the most dangerous world place for children, Catherine Russell, executive director of the United Nations Children's Fund –UNICEF- denounced on Saturday.

After seven days of respite from the horrific violence, the fighting has resumed, and more children will surely die as a result, the official highlighted in a statement released here.

Before the truce, over 5,300 children had been killed in 48 days of Israeli bombardment, a figure that does not include many who are still missing and presumed buried under the rubble, the authority regretted.

Russell warned that bombings are compounded by a lack of water, food, medical supplies, blankets and shelter for those in need, which could lead to a humanitarian catastrophe of major proportions.

UNICEF’s director reiterated her call on all sides for ensuring the protection and assistance of children, “in accordance with their obligations under international humanitarian law.”
