NEW YORK: UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warns Gaza is becoming a “graveyard for children”, as Israeli air strikes intensify, BBC reports.

Guterres said that the case for a “humanitarian ceasefire” has become “more urgent with every passing hour”.

In a joint statement earlier, UN agencies called the killings of civilians in both Gaza and Israel “horrific”.

Israel’s air strikes on the Gaza Strip have intensified. It said that it’s targeting Hamas infrastructure, and is minimising civilian deaths, according to BBC.

The Israeli military said on Monday it hit 450 Hamas targets in the past 24 hours, including anti-tank missile launch pads.

Gaza’s Hamas-run health ministry says 10,022 people, including 4,104 children, have been killed in the territory since Israel’s campaign began.

Israel began bombing Gaza after Hamas killed more than 1,400 people in Israel and kidnapped more than 200 others.
