Israeli airstrikes on the besieged Gaza Strip have killed a Palestinian child every 10 minutes on average since the beginning of the war on October 7, the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) said on Monday.
“On average, a child is killed and 2 are injured every 10 minutes during the war,” UNRWA said in a statement published on X, adding:
Israel has, thus far, killed over 10,022 Palestinians in Gaza, including 4,800 children and 2,550 women, and wounded more than 25,000. Palestinian Ministry of Health reports and international organizations say that the majority of those killed and wounded are women and children.

Despite a massive Israeli military buildup around the Gaza borders and sporadic infiltrations on the outskirts of the besieged Strip, Palestinian Resistance continues to repel Israeli attacks.
To justify its military failure, the Israeli army continues to pound civilian homes throughout the Gaza Strip with new massacres reported everywhere in the besieged enclave.
Gaza has been under a tight Israeli military siege since 2007, following a democratic election in occupied Palestine, the results of which were rejected by Tel Aviv and Washington.
