Children in the State of Palestine have been caught in a tragic and vicious cycle of violence for too long. This is a war disproportionately affecting children, said UNICEF Regional Director Adele Khodr.

In the past 72 hours, three Palestinian children were killed in the latest military operation in Tulkarem, in the West Bank, she added, noting that at least 14 others were reportedly killed in Rafah, Gaza, on the same day.

She wrote on an X post: “The killing of children needs to stop. We need a ceasefire now.”

This came after the IOF stormed Nour Shams camp last Thursday and committed appalling crimes against its local residents, killing and injuring dozens, kidnapping others, and destroying homes and infrastructure.

The IOF reportedly killed 14 citizens and injured dozens during its three-day campaign in the refugee camp of Nour Shams in Tulkarem.

On Sunday, thousands of Palestinians marched in the funeral of the 13 martyrs who were killed during the Nour Shams military attack.

The new martyrs bring the total number of those killed in the Nour Shams refugee camp since the start of the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip on October 7 to 56.
