UNICEF ‘Saddened’ by Israel’s Killing of Two Children in Gaza

UNICEF has said that it is saddened by Israel’s killing of two children in the Gaza Strip this weekend.

In a statement yesterday, UNICEF’s Regional Director for the Middle East and North Africa Geert Cappelaere expressed the UN’s deep sadness about Israel’s killing of two Palestinian children in the besieged enclave this weekend.

Cappelaere stated that the incident brought the number of Palestinian children killed this year to four.

Israeli snipers stationed east of the besieged Gaza Strip opened fire at Palestinians taking part in the Great March of Return protests � which have been ongoing since March � killing 14-year-old Hassan Shalaby and the 17-year-old Hamza Ishtiwi.
