According to foreign media, the number of children who died up to yesterday due to the Israel and hamas crisis is more than 3,257. Citing reports from the health ministries of Gaza and Israel, the agencies confirm that since October 7, more than 3,257 children have died in the Israeli-Hamas war, including at least 3,195 in the Gaza Strip, 33 in the West Bank and 29 in Israel.
The number of children killed in three weeks in Gaza exceeds the number killed in armed conflicts in more than 20 countries globally over the past three years, aid workers say.
More than 40% of the 7,703 people killed in Gaza were children. In addition, more than one third of the deaths in the West Bank, Palestinian Territories and Israel are children, according to Save Children organization.
In addition, rescu workers say that another 1000 children who are said to be missing in the Gaza Strip have died under the debris. It is reported that the death toll could be much higher than this.
At least 6,360 children were reported injured in the Gaza Strip, at least 180 children in the West Bank, and at least 74 children in Israel. More than 200 people, including children, remain hostages in the Gaza Strip.
The Save the Children organization says that child deaths will increase further due to the ground operation being carried out by the Israeli forces in the Gaza Strip.
