Gaza’s health ministry has so far reported that 64 children have been killed in the conflict and over 1,600 have been injured.
The health ministry also warned that relief shelters for families displaced by the bombings are becoming overcrowded and are now a “dangerous environment for the rapid spread of Covid-19.”
They added that “direct targeting” of the ministry’s health facilities has stopped laboratory services for a second day, resulting in the suspension of Covid testing and pregnancy services.
In order to save the health crisis, the ministry is urging “all friends of human rights – whether governments or charitable and humanitarian institutions” – to provide aid to Gaza.
