Israeli Airstrikes Kill 11 Children Who Were Enrolled in a Program to Address Past Trauma From War
Eleven children in Gaza who were taking part in a program to recover from past trauma have been killed by Israeli airstrikes while sheltering in their homes, the Norwegian Refugee Council said Tuesday.
The children, ages 5 to 15, had been taking part in the group’s Better Learning Programme, designed to help youth “exposed to war and conflict in Palestine.”
The Israeli government says it takes steps to minimize the loss of civilian life. But human rights groups have said it has repeatedly bombed civilian homes without warning. On Monday, Amnesty International said that the Israeli attacks on residential build “may amount to war crimes.”
