New York, 22 March 2023 – The more than one million children trapped in Gaza will continue to be exposed to bombs, guns and starvation following the UN Security Council’s failure once again to pass a ceasefire resolution, said Save the Children.  


Xavier Joubert, Save the Children Country Director in the occupied Palestinian territory, said: 

“Once again, children in Gaza have been abandoned by the people whose responsibility it is to protect them. 

Once again, the international community has failed to perform its most basic duty. 

Children will continue to be killed, maimed, struck down by preventable diseases, and face starvation because of this failure today. 

It has been 157 days since the UN Security Council first failed to adopt a ceasefire resolution. In that time, at least 12,597 children have been killed in Gaza, with thousands more likely trapped under the rubble.  

How many thousands more need to die before the world acts?”
