On Monday, Priyanka Chopra used Instagram Stories to share a post that called for a ceasefire in Palestine and highlighted the terrible effects that Israeli bombardment was having on hundreds of children and minors. The first article was published by UNICEF, a United Nations organisation that provides humanitarian and developmental aid to children worldwide.
Priyanka Chopra reposted a message that included a comment attributed to UNICEF executive director Catherine Russell, highlighting the critical need for a long-term humanitarian ceasefire to protect children’s welfare.It said, “Children need a lasting humanitarian ceasefire.”
“Today, the Gaza Strip is once again the most dangerous place in the world to be a child,” stated the UN’s initial post. The awful violence that has been occurring for the past seven days has returned. The effect will undoubtedly be more children dying. Prior to the ceasefire, 48 days of nonstop bombardment are said to have killed around 5,300 Palestinian children; however, this number does not include the large number of children who are still missing and thought to be buried under debris.”
Additionally, the caption stated, “We call on all parties to uphold their obligations under international humanitarian law by ensuring the protection and assistance of children.” “With the resumption of fighting in Gaza, UNICEF Executive Director Catherine Russell stated that all children in the state of Palestine and Israel deserve peace and hope for a better future.”
