“These children lack access to essential services and their conditions are worsening due to the deprivation of vaccines and essential medicines,” said the Palestinian media office.

More than 3,500 Palestinian children under the age of five are at risk of starvation in the Gaza Strip due to Israel’s policy of famine over the besieged territory, the Palestinian media office said Monday.

The entity also noted “a serious shortage of milk and food, a lack of nutritional supplements and the denial of vaccines”.

In addition, he denounced that humanitarian aid has been blocked for the fourth consecutive week, “in the midst of a deafening international silence”.

On the other hand, he indicated that “335,000 children live in extremely difficult conditions due to genocide, displacement and other effects of Israeli aggression”.

Meanwhile, the United Nations Agency for the Palestine Refugee Population in the Middle East (UNRWA) pointed out on Saturday that four out of five Gazan children under five did not manage to eat for a full day, at least once, during the previous three days.

Meanwhile, at the end of May, the Special Adviser to the UN Secretary-General for the Prevention of Genocide, Alice Wirimo Nderitu, warned of an induced famine in Gaza with genocidal intentions.
