International News: UNICEF says almost 20,000 babies born into Gaza war ‘hell’

Posted: Friday, January 19, 2024. 3:28 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Today, the United Nations said that thousands of babies had been born in conditions “beyond belief” in Gaza since the war there erupted more than three months ago.

UNICEF’s Tess Ingram recently visited the Gaza Strip and said that mothers were bleeding to death.

UNICEF noted that almost 20,000 babies have been born into the war that began after the Hamas attacks inside Israel on October 7.

“That’s a baby born into this horrendous war every 10 minutes,” Ingram said.

“Becoming a mother should be a time for celebration. In Gaza, it’s another child delivered into hell.

Seeing newborn babies suffer, while some mothers bleed to death, should keep us all awake at night,” she added.

Ingram described “heartbreaking” meetings with women caught up in the chaos.

Ingram reiterated the need for urgent international action and said that many pregnant and breastfeeding women and infants are living in “inhumane” conditions, including makeshift shelters, with poor nutrition and unsafe water.
