A new report has shed more light on the plight of Palestinian children following the Israeli war on the Gaza Strip last year. Global NGO, Defense for Children International, says about one thousand Palestinian children are suffering from permanent disabilities as a result of the 50-day war on Gaza. The organization also said nearly 550 Palestinian children were killed while sheltering in homes and schools during the war. It stressed that there’s no safe place for children in the besieged Gaza Strip. Some 22-hundred Palestinians were killed in Israel’s last summer onslaught. Over eleven-thousand others, mostly women and children, were also injured.
