On Friday, Israel launched an attack on the Gaza strip, killing 5 children, injuring many others, and destroying homes. Save the Children issued a statement:
“Children should never be collateral damage and there is no possible justification for children to pay the price of this new escalation with their lives and safety. Children must never be killed or maimed. This is a grave violation against children and perpetrators should be held to account for their actions.”
Israel authorities are have reportedly closed crossings into the Gaza strip, preventing Palestinians from accessing hospitals, or returning home.
