Statement following escalation in violence in Gaza and Israel

Following the escalation in violence in Gaza and Israel, Save the Children’s Country Director for the occupied Palestinian territory, Jason Lee, said:  

Following an escalation in violence between Palestinian armed groups and Israeli forces in Israel and Gaza today, our teams and their families are bracing for what comes next. We know from previous experience that children will be terrified. Children have been killed and injured in every major escalation, not to mention suffering from serious mental health impacts – they’ve never emerged unscathed. All parties must show restraint and focus on keeping children and families safe and bringing an end to the fear and suffering they have endured for far too long."
