UN Committee: More than 10 children in Gaza lose their legs every day

Friday 9-February-2024


The head of the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child, Anne Skelton, said, “today, there is no child in the Gaza Strip free from fear, pain and hunger.”

Skelton pointed out that “some children in Gaza lost their lives, and others lost their limbs, parents, siblings, and friends.”

She underlined that on average, more than 10 children in Gaza lose one or both legs every day since the start of the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip.

The number of Palestinian martyrs as a result of the ongoing Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip has risen to about 27.9 thousand martyrs, the majority of whom are women and children. The number of the wounded has mounted to 67.4 thousand since last October 7, according to a new tally published by the Ministry of Health in Gaza on Friday.
