Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Monitor has said that the children in the Gaza Strip are suffering from food insecurity and lack of adequate health and educational services as a result of 11 years of ongoing Israeli blockade.


This came in a statement released by the Euro-Med on the occasion of the International Children’s Day, which is observed on November 20.


“What the children of Gaza face is a clear violation of their rights that are guaranteed by international law,” the Monitor stated.


In addition to food insecurity, Israel has escalated the detention of Palestinian children and minors, whose number amounts to more than 150 detainees every month, according to the Monitor.
