Death Toll from Starvation in Gaza Strip Rises to 40

A Child in Gaza Dies Due to Famine and Thirst

Tragic news has emerged from the Gaza Strip, where a child has lost his life at the Masjid al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital in Deir al-Balah due to severe malnutrition and thirst. According to reports from the official Palestinian agency WAFA, this incident has raised the number of malnutrition victims in Gaza to 40.

Hospital sources revealed that over 200 children in the Gaza Strip, especially in the town of Beit Lahiya in the north, are showing signs of malnutrition. The situation is becoming dire, with a looming humanitarian disaster in the northern region of Gaza, which is home to approximately 700 thousand people.

The food crisis in the north of Gaza has been exacerbated by the closure of border crossings by Israel, preventing aid trucks from delivering essential supplies to the area. In addition, the recent occupation of the Palestinian side of the Rafah Border Gate by the Israeli army has halted the flow of aid to Gaza, leaving the injured and sick stranded without access to necessary medical treatment.

Since October 7, 2023, Israel’s attacks on the Gaza Strip have resulted in the deaths of 37,266 people and caused injuries to 85,102 individuals, as reported by the Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza. The ongoing crisis has made it difficult for medical teams and civil defense officials to reach bodies still buried under rubble or scattered along roadsides.

The international community is urged to intervene and provide urgent assistance to the people of Gaza to prevent further loss of life and alleviate the suffering caused by the humanitarian crisis in the region.
