Over 12,300 children killed in Gaza in four months

UNRWA, the UN relief agency for Palestinian refugees, reported that more children have been killed in Gaza in four months than in four years of conflict worldwide.


The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) Commissioner General Philippe Lazzarini said: "The number of children reported killed in just over 4 months in Gaza is higher than the number of children killed in 4 years of wars around the world combined.”

Lazzarini added: This war is a war on children. It is a war on their childhood and their future."
