Health workers back from Gaza: we've never seen so many dead children

On this edition of Your Call, health workers share eyewitness accounts of the medical crisis in Gaza. They say they've never seen so many dead children.

More than 33,000 people have been killed during the US-backed Israeli assault on the Gaza Strip since October 7. More than 13,000 of those deaths are children. Thousands more are injured or missing and presumed dead. Over 17,000 children have been orphaned or separated from their parents, according to UNICEF. Thirty-two people, including 28 children, have died of malnutrition and dehydration at hospitals in northern Gaza.

Later in the show, we'll discuss the International Freedom Flotilla to Gaza, which is leaving next week. The flotilla consists of multiple ships carrying over 5,500 tons of urgently needed food and medicine for Palestinians.
