Gaza Under Attack: Child deaths and injuries by age, region and circumstances



(Last Updated: 01 January 2007)


A key component of DCI/PS's work is documenting violations of Palestinian children's rights. The figures below track child deaths as a result of Israeli military actions in Gaza from 25 June 2006.  Please see DCI Case Studies for more detailed information on the circumstances of death of these children. Please note that we will endeavor to provide information in as timely a manner as possible but the situation on the ground in Gaza poses challenges to the work of DCI's field workers in collecting this information.

Please note that statistics on child injuries are gathered from a variety of sources and may not be confirmed by DCI/PS field workers.
