UNICEF: “Children continue to face catastrophic conditions in Gaza”

Posted: Thursday, December 21, 2023. 12:56 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: UNICEF and the international community continue to call for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza as families and children are suffering.

“Genuine safety for Gaza’s children depends on parties to the conflict ensuring that humanitarians have unimpeded access to civilians wherever they are… on our ability to bring water, essential food, nutrition supplements, fuel and other humanitarian supplies into the territory… and on parties implementing an immediate humanitarian ceasefire,” UNICEF spokesperson James Elder stated.

“The intensity of the attacks, the massive number of child casualties, the desperation and panic of the people on the move – people who already have nothing – is palpable. It is humanitarian disaster on top of humanitarian disaster,” Elder added.

Elder said that unless those conditions are met, children in Gaza are now in danger from the sky, disease on the ground, and death from hunger and thirst.

“The children of Gaza have suffered enough. We need a humanitarian ceasefire, and peace, now,” UNICEF demanded.

Since Hamas attack on Israel on October 7 and Israel’s response in declaring war, thousands have been killed and thousands more displaced.
