IP- UNICEF Executive Director Catherine Russell has called on the parties to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to spare no effort to protect children as the Gaza Strip has become the most dangerous place for children again.

Iran PressAmerica: "Today, Gaza is again the most dangerous place to be a child. And winter is on the doorstep. All parties to the conflict must do everything possible to protect the lives and well-being of all children no matter where they are. No more children should die in this conflict," she wrote on her X (formerly known as Twitter) account.
