UNICEF: 13,900 children were killed in horrific and indiscriminate attacks in Gaza

The Secretary-General of the United Nations, António Guterres, announced on Thursday that the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) reported the killing of 13,900 Palestinian children in horrific and indiscriminate attacks in the Gaza Strip.


Guterres stressed, during his speech at the monthly session held by the Security Council on the situation in the Middle East, that there are continuing obstacles that withhold aid from the residents of the Gaza Strip who are in dire need of it.


Guterres added that aid workers are being killed in a horrific manner in the Gaza Strip, calling for an investigation into these events.


He pointed out that a comprehensive approach to calm should be adopted that includes the occupied West Bank, stressing that last year witnessed the highest rate of settler attacks on Palestinians in the West Bank.
