Gaza: Innocent children in Gaza, the victims of Israeli airstrikes, held a press conference in an attempt to awaken the world’s conscience, asserting that Israel is subjecting them to starvation.
As a result of the ongoing Israeli aggression on Gaza, the number of Palestinian martyrs has exceeded 10,000, including a significant number of children and women, according to international media reports.
The affected people in Gaza are facing severe shortages of food and water, which prompted the innocent children of Gaza to hold a press conference outside Al-Shifa Hospital, aiming to raise global awareness. A 10-year-old child, along with other children, addressed the press conference on Tuesday and stated that Israel has been bombing them in front of the whole world since October 7, and they are facing genocide. He emphasized that Israel is starving them to death. “Since October 7, we have faced extermination, killing, displacement, and bombs falling on our heads in front of the whole world,” he said.

The children, during their press conference, stated that Israel is lying to the entire world by claiming that it is fighting against a resistance organization. In reality, they said, Israel is attacking them, and they have narrowly escaped death many times.
The press conference by the children concluded with their demands for peace, life, education, medical care, and food, urging a change in Israel’s behavior.
It is worth noting that due to Israeli Airstrikes at least 4,324 children in Gaza Gaza have been martyred. According to an old report, the majority of Palestinian kids suffer from PTSD due to regular Israeli attacks on them. The report notes “…every child in Palestine is likely to have been exposed to at least three traumatic events. Importantly, 41% of Palestinian children inside Gaza suffered from PTSD“. The situation has gotten worse since October 7, when Israel declared war against Gaza.
