GAZA — The Health Ministry in Gaza has reported that three children have died at Al-Shifa hospital in the Gaza Strip as a result of malnutrition and dehydration, bringing the total number of fatalities from these conditions to 23, Al-Ghad reported.اضافة اعلان

 Israel's intensified war on the strip has exacerbated the suffering of civilians, leading to malnutrition due to a lack of food and baby milk. Consequently, deaths caused by dehydration and malnutrition are occurring almost daily, especially among infants.

The international organization "ActionAid" has warned of a total collapse of humanitarian conditions in the Gaza Strip, with a quarter of its population now ‘one step away from starvation.’

A UN official has also stated that a quarter of the civilian population in Gaza suffers from severe levels of food insecurity, further noting that one out of six children under two years of age in the North suffers from severe malnutrition.
