Philippe Lazzarini emphasized the gravity of the situation, labeling it a war against children’s well-being and future. The conflict began with a significant Hamas attack on October 7, resulting in around 1,160 deaths in Israel, predominantly civilians, according to AFP estimates based on Israeli official figures.
