The statement stated that an increase in maternal deaths during pregnancy is expected due to lack of adequate care, adding: “The lives of newborns hang by a thread. “If hospitals run out of fuel, the lives of 130 premature babies who need intensive care and neonatal care will be in danger as incubators and other medical equipment will not be able to function.” the warning was given.

The statement reported that 2,326 women and 3,760 children were killed in the Gaza Strip, corresponding to 67 percent of all victims, adding: “This means that 420 children are killed or injured every day.” They are babies only a few months old,” the statement said.
