‘Children are being robbed of childhood’ in Gaza, UNRWA chief says in call for ceasefire

Commissioner-General of UNRWA Philippe Lazzarini reiterates his call for a humanitarian ceasefire in the war between Israel and Hamas, warning that the future of Gaza’s children “is at stake.”

More than half a million children in the Gaza Strip are no longer going to school, the head of the agency for Palestinian refugees writes on X, formerly Twitter.

“Every day of war deepens the scars, risking a lost generation vulnerable to exploitation,” he adds. “Children are being robbed of childhood.”
