UNICEF Executive Director Catherine Russell asked in an X post: How many more children will suffer and die before this nightmare ends?

Commenting on the killing of the six-year-old Palestinian girl who went missing for 12 days after an Israeli tank targeted her family car in Gaza, Russell said that “the body of a little girl named Hind was finally found in Gaza today along with relatives and rescue workers who tried to bring her safely back to her mother.”

She pointed out that “Rafah is one of the most densely populated places on earth, teeming with children and families, some already displaced many times by war in Gaza.”

Some 1.3M civilians are pushed into a corner, living on streets or shelters, the UN official added.

“They must be protected. They have nowhere safe to go.”

The body of a six-year-old Palestinian girl, missing for 12 days after an Israeli tank targeted her family car in Gaza, was found along with the bodies of her relatives.

Two medics were also found dead after an Israeli tank bombed their ambulance upon its arrival at the scene, following prior coordination with the Israeli army. The ambulance was found just a few meters away from the car containing the bodies of Hind and her relatives.
