The United Nations children’s agency (UNICEF) has condemned as “horrific” the impacts of the ongoing Israeli war against Gaza calling for an end to the “indiscriminate” killing of the children in the besieged 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.

“I saw a nine-year-old girl who was clinging to life on a hospital bed in Rafah with major blast wounds down one side of her body, and when I met her, she had been that way 16 days because the medical ability in Gaza to repair those wounds was non-existent,” she added.

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

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.
