The UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) has reported a chilling statistic from the ongoing conflict in Gaza: on average, a Palestinian child is killed and two more are injured every 10 minutes. This grim reality underscores the urgent need for protection of civilians during times of conflict, a commitment that the UNRWA insists is not just an aspiration or ideal, but an obligation to our shared humanity.
The UNRWA, the primary UN agency operating in the besieged Gaza Strip, is currently providing refuge to approximately 670,000 displaced Palestinians in its schools. The relentless Israeli attacks have also claimed the lives of at least 70 of the agency’s staff workers.
The conflict escalated following a cross-border attack by the Palestinian resistance group Hamas on October 7, prompting Israel to launch air and ground raids on the Gaza Strip. The Israeli bombardments have resulted in at least 10,022 Palestinian deaths, including 4,104 children and 2,641 women. The Israeli death toll stands at nearly 1,600, according to official figures.
In addition to the staggering loss of life and massive displacements, the 2.3 million residents of Gaza are also grappling with dwindling basic supplies due to the Israeli siege of the region.
