The head of the UN agency for Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA) has condemned the huge sufferings of the minors in Gaza stressing that without ceasefire, the Gaza children will become a lost generation.

“Children suffer first + suffer most in conflicts & wars. In Gaza it is no different,” Philippe Lazzarini, UNRWA’s Commissioner-General, said on X on Thursday. “Children have gone through what no child anywhere in the world should see or undergo.”
Lazzarini has condemned the “far too many” children being killed, injured or maimed for life and added that those who survived the
war are in deep trauma.

According to the Palestinian Ministry of Education, more than 15,000 children have been killed since the start of Israel’s aggression on the Gaza Strip, the majority of them schoolchildren.

“Their schools have been destroyed & they lost a whole school year, with no education or play,” stated Lazzarini. “The war robbed the children of Gaza of their childhood.”

“Without a ceasefire they will become a lost generation, easy to fall prey to exploitation. For the sake of children: Palestinians and Israelis, #CeasefireNowInGaza,” the UNRWA chief emphasized.

Children suffer first + suffer most in conflicts & wars.

Earlier this month, the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres informed Israel’s UN ambassador Gilad Erdan that “Israeli Security Forces” would be named in their annual report which names and shames States/groups that harm children.

This would blacklist Israeli regime on a list that also includes the likes of ISIS and Al-Qaeda.
