The United Nations children's agency [UNICEF] has called for an end to the “indiscriminate killing” campaign against Palestinians, especially children, in the Gaza Strip, raising the alarm at the dire situation caused by “Israel’s” genocidal war on the territory.

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.”

Despite warnings from international humanitarian actors, “Israeli” troops recently took control of the Palestinian side of the Rafah crossing, Gaza's lifeline, and started carpet-bombing the city.
