UNICEF: 80% of Gaza’s children suffer from “severe food poverty”

The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) said that more than 80% of children in the Gaza Strip "suffer from acute food poverty."


The organization said in a statement that its estimates “indicate that in the coming weeks at least 10,000 children under the age of five will suffer from malnutrition that will threaten their lives.”


It stated, "These results indicate that all children under five in the Gaza Strip - numbering 335,000 children - are at high risk of acute malnutrition and death, which could have been prevented had it not been for the continued increasing risk of famine."
