UN agency says 400 children killed in Gaza op

The head of UNICEF in the Gaza Strip tells Reuters that over 400 children were killed in Operation Protective Edge, and nearly 400,000 are traumatized and face an “extraordinarily bleak” future.

“How do we expect parents and caregivers to care for their children and to raise them in a positive and nurturing way when they, themselves, are barely functioning as humans? People have lost entire strands of their family in one blow,” Pernille Ironside tells the news agency.
