'Israel's war leaves children suffer most'

Sun, 25 Jan 2009 14:28:03 GMT

Israeli incursion claimed lives of 460 children and left 1855 other wounded.
Children of Gaza reach out to international rights group conveying a message with their heartbreaking silence under the Israeli imposed siege.

Gaza Children are denied of their basic rights, and have to bear the burden of Israel's military adventurism. An increasingly large number of children are bounded to hospitals as a result of Tel Aviv's 'unjustifiable' war crimes against Palestinians.

A ten-day old infant was born at home because war and incursion did not allow the mother to go to hospital at the right time, Dr. Anwar Al- Sheikh Khalil, director of Al-Naser Pediatric Hospital told Press TV's correspondent in Gaza, Akram al-Sattari.

Dr. Anwar highlighted the difficulties the children are suffering from saying that "Hyperthermia is the main malady we face by the time Israel cuts the electricity in winter. Low blood pressure, anoxia, which means a total decrease in the level of oxygen are the first sequence the infant experiences."

Lack of facilities and drugs, congenital medical conditions and referral system to transfer patients to more facilitated hospitals are the main challenges the system is faced with.

Knowing that the onslaught in Gaza took the lives of the innocent and above that destroyed a nation's dream, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak amused the international community by describing the Israeli forces as 'the most moral army in the world' in bizarre statement on Sunday.
