May 16, 2018

In Gaza, over 1,000 children have been injured by Israeli forces during demonstrations since March 30th, this year.

According to a UNICEF report, some injuries had been severe and potentially life-altering, including amputations. 

Meanwhile, UNICEF said in a statement that recent violence has exacerbated the already weak health system in the Gaza Strip, which is crumbling because of the severe power cuts and shortages of fuel, medicine and equipment.
