The heads of 18 organizations, including UNICEF, the World Food Programme, and the World Health Organization, expressed their regret over the number of casualties in the Israeli war on Gaza.

Approximately 10,000 Palestinians, half of whom are children, have been killed in the destructive Israeli bombardment since the start of the war.

In the statement by the heads of the UN agencies, it was stated that in Gaza, 'the entire population is under siege and attack, deprived of access to essential elements for survival, and the population is being shelled in their homes, shelters, hospitals, and places of worship. This is unacceptable.'

The UN agency officials also called on Hamas to release over 240 hostages held in Gaza since October 7th, urging both sides to respect their obligations under international law.

They added that more food, water, medicine, and fuel must be allowed to enter Gaza to assist the people.

In the statement, they wrote, 'We need an immediate ceasefire for humanitarian reasons. It has been 30 days. This is enough. This must end now.'"
