While Children’s Day was celebrated worldwide, Amnesty International once again brought attention to the dire situation of children in Gaza, who are facing intense attacks by Israeli forces.
On Monday, November 20, the organization stated that one child is killed every ten minutes in Gaza and emphasized the urgent need for a ceasefire.
Recalling the killing of 52 children on the western border, with 1,500 children trapped under rubble, and the death of 33 children in southern Israel, Amnesty International condemned the ongoing violence.
The organization specifically mentioned 30 children affiliated with the Hamas group and called for an immediate ceasefire between the two parties.
According to reports, since the beginning of the conflict between Israel and Hamas, five thousand Palestinian children have been killed, and over nine thousand others have been injured.
November 20 marked a day dedicated to honoring children worldwide.
