“All children will probably be traumatized because they have gone through something that no child should have to go through,” concluded UNICEF Regional Director for the Middle East and North Africa, Adele Jodr. “Whenever there is an attack there are dead children,” she added.

The regional director of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) for the Middle East and North Africa, Adele Jodrhas warned that the conflict in the Gaza Strip has become a “war against children” and has denounced that the area is already a “children’s cemetery.”

“Probably all the children will be traumatized because they have gone through something that no child should go through,” Jodr highlighted this Monday during a event held in Tokyo (Japan) and picked up by Japanese public television NHK.

Jodr has highlighted that “every time there is an attack there are children killed because Gaza has a very young population concentrated in a very small area.”

The head of UNICEF has recalled that there are 37,000 children suffering from severe malnutrition and? 17,000 have been orphanedtherefore they are at risk of exploitation and abuse.

Furthermore, there are many who have suffered serious injuries and even loss of limbs, circumstances that can be fatal given the critical situation of the Gazan health system. “If they had been in a normal place, where there was a normal hospital, a hospital equipped with the necessary medical supplies and material, they could have been saved,” she argued.

For all these reasons, the Lebanese woman has asked for an immediate ceasefire and the involvement of the international community so that the necessary help reaches the children of Gaza who need it.
