from the article:

Children have accounted for 2 out of every 5 civilian deaths in Gaza, according to Jason Lee, Save the Children’s director for the Palestinian territories. That does not include some 1,000 children the group estimates are still trapped under the rubble.
“We are now in a situation where one child is killed every 10 minutes,” he said.

Better get Israel that funding fast so they don't run out of bombs. It must be difficult and resource intensive maintaining these kind of child murder numbers.

just in case /s

Not defending Israel but like 50% of gazas population is under 18. So its not very hard to kill a lot of kids, in fact just bomb anywhere and as long as you kill a few people you've likely killed some kids.

Any high ground Israel once had in this is long gone.

This is the best summary I could come up with:

More than 9,000 Gazans in total have died so far, the Health Ministry says, in Israel’s fifth and bloodiest war yet with Hamas, the militant group that controls the coastal enclave.

The conflict began on Oct. 7, when Hamas militants rampaged through southern Israel, killing more than 1,400 people and taking more than 230 others hostage, including at least a dozen children.

The Israel Defense Forces says it targets Hamas militants and infrastructure and has safeguards in place to prevent civilian casualties.

The IDF has accused the extremist group of hiding fighters, weapons, command centers and tunnels in residential areas.

They are crammed into apartment buildings with dozens of relatives, in search of safety, or hiding out in U.N. shelters and schools with thousands of others, sleeping under desks where they are meant to be learning.

On the fifth day, Shahad heeded the Israeli military’s evacuation orders, fleeing with her extended family from Gaza City to Nuseirat in the south.

The original article contains 1,311 words, the summary contains 160 words. Saved 88%. I'm a bot and I'm open source!

But didn't you know that only Israeli children matter/count?!?

I wonder how many more innocent people need to die?

And what is the plan of Israel doing with those people and the severely destroyed civilian infrastructure after they stop bombing the shit out of them. They don't expect that those people would be particularly fond of them and how could they be?

They are like the school bully who is getting surprised that their victim is hitting back and decide to beat the shit out of them as a retaliation.

I wonder if that’s got anything to do with Egypt erecting concrete barriers at their border crossing and the Israeli tank that “accidentally” fired on them.

Reminds me of the time the neighbor's kids kept playing in my yard and I accidentally shot his house with a tank. You can imagine my embarrassment.
