The commissioner general of the UN Agency for Palestinian Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), Philippe Lazzarini, assured this Tuesday that the number of children killed in the Gaza Strip as a result of Israeli attacks is higher than the number of minors. died in all the wars of the last four years.

"Chilling. The number of children killed in just over four months in Gaza is higher than the number of children killed in four years of wars around the world combined," Lazzarini said on his account on the social network X, formerly Twitter.

In that sense, he highlighted that the Israeli offensive is a war "against children", "against their childhood" and "against their future", which is why he has insisted on his call for the establishment of an immediate ceasefire.
