By Michael F. Brown,
Update: by the day this article has gone live the report is 3,195 children officially murdered by the IDF bombing of the Gaza strip.
More Palestinian children were killed in the first few days of Israeli attacks on Gaza than Ukrainian children in 18 months since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Though I follow many international developments closely, this stunned me.
American television viewers have routinely been told that Russia’s attack on Ukraine is extremely brutal.
How much worse must be the brutality meted out to Palestinian children to have all this death packed into a matter of days as the Western media fail to convey the full horror of what is happening in Gaza and how quickly.
According to the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) regarding Ukraine, as of 5 October, it had “verified that 9,806 civilians, including 560 children, have been killed as a result of the war. The Office has also verified that 17,962 people, including 1,196 children, have been injured.”
Defense for Children International – Palestine reported Monday afternoon that already more than 1,000 children have been killed in Gaza.
GAZA UPDATE: More than 1,000 Palestinian children in Gaza have been killed by Israeli attacks. Additional children are unaccounted for and missing under the rubble of destroyed buildings, indicating the true death toll is much higher.

The talks of a 'humanitarian corridor' are meant as a deceptive strategy to whitewash the murder of 1,100 children and more than 3,000 Palestinian civilians in 9 days.
Those responsible must be held accountable in international trials for their actions, as history will remember… pic.twitter.com/UNHFlWRr5X

Defense for Children International – Palestine reports an average of one child killed every 15 minutes since the initiation of the 7 October attack by Hamas – and perhaps other groups – beyond the Gaza boundary that killed soldiers, police and civilians alike.
This figure from DCIP raises profound concerns of just how horrifying the situation in Gaza must be.
And it’s probably worse than the figures cited by DCIP as the organization itself notes.
According to DCIP, Gaza’s Ministry of the Interior reports that over 1,000 people are thought to be buried in rubble and not yet located. That likely means hundreds more children have been killed and not yet added to the overall count.
With children comprising 50 percent of Gaza’s population, roughly one child in 1,000 has been killed.
The Tel Aviv monster regime, @joebiden, @EUinIsrael states and “Never Again” land @GermanyDiplo are increasing the extermination rate of Palestinian children in the Gaza death camp to above 100 children per day. They’ve now killed 1 in every 1000 kids. #NeverAgain #GazaGenocide https://t.co/JgnjKegn57

This is shocking to watch unfold as American and European officials promote the slaughter of Palestinians and President Joe Biden prepares to head to Israel Wednesday to cheer on war crimes against a largely refugee population living within the confines of Gaza.
