The UN children’s agency says around 40 children have been killed in one year of demonstrations along the fence that separates the besieged Gaza Strip and the Israeli-occupied territories.

Iran Press/America: According to UNICEF on Thursday, almost 3,000 others have been hospitalized with injuries since the start of the protests one year ago, many leading to life-long disabilities. 

UNICEF's Middle East Director Geert Cappelaere voiced anger at the growing number of casualties, calling for an end to violence against children in Gaza and elsewhere across the occupied territories, Iran Press reported.

The March of Return and Breaking of Siege began on March 30, 2018, stressing that Palestinian people have the right to return to their occupied territories and lift the Zionist siege on the population of the Gaza Strip for more than 13 years.
