UNICEF urges end to Israel’s ‘indiscriminate killing’ in Gaza

TEHRAN, May 14 (MNA) – The United Nations Children's Agency (UNICEF) has called for an end to the “indiscriminate killing” campaign against Palestinians, especially children, in the Gaza Strip.

In an interview with the US broadcaster ABC on Monday, UNICEF spokesperson Tess Ingram said that she saw the “horrific” impact of fighting on children’s bodies during the time that she spent at hospitals in Gaza, including in the southern city of Rafah.

“We need to see an end to the fighting and the indiscriminate killing of civilians, especially children.”

Despite warnings from international humanitarian actors, Israeli troops recently took control of the Palestinian side of the Rafah crossing, Gaza's lifeline, and started carpet-bombing the city.

Israeli officials said it was the first step towards a full-scale assault on Rafah, home to around 1.5 million Palestinians who have been displaced due to the Gaza onslaught.

Israel unleashed its brutal war on Gaza on October 7 after the Palestinian Hamas Resistance group carried out a historic operation against the occupying entity in retaliation for its intensified atrocities against the Palestinian people.

The Tel Aviv regime has so far killed at least 35,091 Palestinians, mostly women and children, and injured 78,827 others.
