UNICEF has warned the situation on the ground inside the Gaza Strip “makes hell look like a tea party” as the death toll is “staggering.”

Israel are bombing the Gaza constantly which has left thousands of Palestinians dead most of which are women and children.

UNICEF has slammed Israel as their bombs have killed more than 3,083 children and the Hamas-run health ministry says at least 7,326 Palestinians have so far been killed in Israeli airstrikes on Gaza since 7 October, which is rising daily.

Hospitals in Gaza have dwindling power and medical supplies as the stream of dead and injured Palestinians continues to pour into wards and corridors.

UNICEF has said that in less than three weeks more than 3,000 children being killed is a “staggering” figure, the charity said.

Hospitals in Gaza are on the verge of closing down due to a lack of power, and one doctor described the desperate situation as this “makes hell look like a tea party.”

UNICEF Middle East and North Africa regional director Adele Khodr, said, “The situation in the Gaza Strip is a growing stain on our collective conscience.

“The rate of death and injuries of children is simply staggering.

“Even more frightening is the fact that unless tensions are eased, and unless humanitarian aid is allowed, including food, water, medical supplies and fuel, the daily death toll will continue to rise.”

Khaled, a doctor at Al-Awda hospital, the main maternity facility based in northern Gaza, told the Mirror, “The situation is critical, and we face huge challenges in providing services.

“We will have to stop the activities if we do not receive more fuel.

“We are working on two generators. There has been no electricity for 17 days in Gaza. There are a huge number of patients and not enough beds.”

Norwegian Aid Committee’s Mads Gilbert told the Mirror, from the Gaza-Egypt border it is a truly “horrific scene” for the Palestinians.

He added, “Imagine a hospital with 5,000 to 15,000 civilian refugees, overcrowded with patients needing surgical care, and then the lights are going out.

“I think you can imagine how difficult that is.”

UN chief Antonio Guterres has demanded more aid be sent to Gaza for those who have innocently been caught up in the war.

He also sparked outrage in Israel when he said that Hamas’ terror attacks “did not happen in a vacuum.”

He added, “The grievances of the Palestinian people cannot justify the appalling attacks by Hamas. And those appalling attacks cannot justify the collective punishment of the Palestinian people.”
