As of today, more than 9,600 Palestinian children in Gaza have been killed by the Israeli genocidal assault on the besieged population. Thousands more are missing and presumed dead. Gaza has been described as a “graveyard for children” by UN Secretary-General António Guterres.
Mass killings are the tip of the iceberg of Israeli violations against Gaza's children. The vast majority are currently displaced. Most face severe hunger, with malnutrition posing lifelong developmental risks for young children. There are 71,000 cases of diarrhea in children under 5 in Gaza, which can cause dehydration and death. UNICEF reported that around 1,000 children in Gaza have lost one or both legs. Thousands have lost one or both parents.
