Save the Children said that at least 10 children lose their legs every day in the Gaza Strip, which has been subjected to aggression from the Israeli occupation since October 7.
The organization, which is based in Britain, explained in a statement issued on Sunday that reports from the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) indicate that 1,000 children in Gaza have lost one or both of their legs since the beginning of the Israeli attacks.
The statement added that most of the surgeries for children were performed without anesthesia, and in this context, it pointed out the lack of medical personnel and equipment in the sector.
The statement devoted space to the statements of the organization's affairs coordinator in Palestine, Jason Lee, who said that the suffering of children in this conflict is unimaginable.
Since October 7, the Israeli army has been waging a devastating war on Gaza that, as of Sunday, has left 22,835 dead, 58,416 wounded, massive infrastructure destruction, and an unprecedented humanitarian catastrophe, according to the Gaza Strip authorities and the United Nations.
