In total, at least 2,360 children have died due to the incessant attacks in the last 18 days. The UN agency calls for an immediate ceasefire and sustained and unimpeded access to humanitarian aid.

The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) reported this Wednesday that more than 400 boys and girls die or are injured every day in the Gaza Strip due to Israeli bombings.

"Over the past 18 days, the Gaza Strip has witnessed a devastating toll among its children: 2360 dead and 5364 injured due to incessant attacks; That is, more than 400 children die or are injured every day," says a UNICEF statement sent to the media.

"The killing and mutilation of children, the abduction of children, attacks on hospitals and schools, and the denial of humanitarian access constitute serious violations of children's rights", said UNICEF Regional Director for the Middle East and North Africa, Adele Khodr. "UNICEF makes an appeal urgent to all parties to agree a ceasefireallow humanitarian access and free all the hostages. Even wars have rules. "Civilians, particularly children, must be protected and every effort must be made to protect them in all circumstances," he added.

For all this and to respond to the "terrible" situation of children in the Gaza Strip, UNICEF calls for an immediate humanitarian ceasefire, the opening of all access crossings to Gaza to allow the entry of humanitarian aid, which urgent medical cases in Gaza are allowed to leave or receive critical health services, and respect and protect civilian infrastructure, such as shelters and schools, and health, electricity, water and sanitation facilities.
