EAA Strongly Condemns Attacks and Killing of Gaza's Children; Demands Protection of Children and Immediate Ceasefire
03 November, 2023: More than 3,750 children have been killed in three weeks with no end in sight to the military onslaught in Gaza. This represents a harrowing 41 percent of the 9,061 fatalities of the unrelenting war in the Gaza strip.
The number of Palestinian children killed in Gaza in the last three weeks has exceeded the annual number of children killed across the world's conflict zones since 2019, according to Save the Children.
Moreover, more than 50,000 expectant mothers are on the brink of giving birth, with their newborns facing immediate threats of hunger, disease, and even death. Severe shortages of electricity for incubators further jeopardize the lives of vulnerable infants, denying them essential life-saving care.
EAA unequivocally deplores the relentless military onslaught causing immeasurable harm to innocent children.
We support the UN Special Rapporteurs' joint statement that 'Gaza is Running Out of Time' and reiterate our collective plea, alongside the global community, for an immediate ceasefire.
