The Palestinian Ministry of Health has stated that children and women in the Gaza Strip are experiencing multiple Psychological trauma as a result of the intense bombing by the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF), the subsequent destruction, and the loss of their homes and loved ones.

Dr. Ashraf al-Qudra, the ministry's spokesperson, stated on Saturday that more than 900,000 Palestinian children in shelters are exposed to the risks of severe cold, drought, malnutrition, respiratory diseases, and skin diseases in the absence of vaccinations for newborns.

He noted that on the 85th day of the aggression, the number of martyrs in the Gaza Strip has risen to 21,672 Palestinians, with 56,165 others injured since October 7.

Al-Qudra added that the IOF committed 14 massacres against families in the past 24 hours, resulting in 165 martyrs and 250 injuries.
