“Gaza is becoming a graveyard for children. Hundreds of girls and boys are reportedly being killed or injured every day,” Guterres said.

He said that international humanitarian law is being clearly violated. He said the United Nations needed $1.2 billion to provide aid to 2.7 million people in Gaza and the West Bank.

Guterres told reporters, “Israeli Defense Forces ground operations and sustained bombardment continue to attack civilians, hospitals, UN facilities including refugee camps, mosques, churches and shelters. No one is safe.”

“At the same time, Hamas and other terrorists use civilians as human shields and continue to launch rockets indiscriminately toward Israel,” he said.

Guterres said that 89 people working with the United Nations Palestinian Refugee Agency (UNRWA) in Gaza were killed, which he described as the highest number of deaths for UN aid workers, “compared to any comparable period in the history of our organization.” There is more in.”
