Gaza Strip “the most dangerous place in the world to be a child,” UNICEF

Hespress ENSaturday 9 December 2023 – 22:00

In a stark assessment of the dire situation in the Gaza Strip, UNICEF’s Regional Director for the Middle East and North Africa, Adele Khodr, declared it “the most dangerous place in the world to be a child.”

Describing the heartbreaking impact of the ongoing violence, Khodr highlighted the daily toll on children, with neighborhoods reduced to rubble and countless young lives lost or forever altered.

Khodr emphasized the urgent need for an immediate, lasting humanitarian ceasefire to end the relentless suffering of children and civilians.

“Close to one million children have been forcibly displaced from their homes. They are now being pushed further and further south into tiny, overcrowded areas without water, food, or protection, putting them at increased risk of respiratory infections and waterborne disease,” the UNICEF official highlighted.

Khodr urged the international community to act swiftly, noting that “the world is watching, helpless and devastated – we cannot act quickly enough. This must stop immediately.”
