UN says Gaza hostilities kills six children

Unicef said the latest round of violence on Saturday in and around the Gaza Strip had killed at least six children and injured 38 others.

The UN agency said hostilities had led to schools closing down in Gaza and parts of Israel, with Palestinian children unable to reach urgent medical services 

It called for "the immediate cessation of hostilities and for all parties to protect children from all forms of violence and grave violations, in accordance with international law, including international humanitarian law".
