Monday 25-December-2023


UN Women revealed on Sunday that two mothers are killed every hour in the Gaza Strip due to the ongoing Israeli aggression.

“According to UN Women’s estimates, two mothers are killed every hour in Gaza,” the UN entity said in a statement on X, adding that “Children are losing their only safety line—their parents. This needs to stop.”

UN Women called for an immediate humanitarian ceasefire.

Along the same line, the UN estimated that there are 50,000 pregnant women in the Gaza Strip, with over 180 giving birth every day.

Doctors and midwives are doing everything possible to provide care for post-natal and high-risk pregnant women at 7 out of 22 operational UNRWA health centers, it added.
