Children trapped in Gaza increasingly dying of starvation, says WHO

President Biden has said tonight that no hostage for aid and ceasefire deal before Ramadan would be very very dangerous.

The World Health Organisation warns that increasing numbers of children trapped in Gaza are dying of starvation and dehydration.

The situation is particularly acute in northern Gaza where one-in-six children under the age of two are suffering from “extreme” malnutrition.
