“Before the pause, more than 5,300 Palestinian children were reportedly killed in 48 days of incessant bombing.”,” RIA Novosti quotes her as saying.

Russell noted that if the conflict returns to its previous level of tension after the end of the truce, then it can be assumed that every day the number of child victims will grow and number in the hundreds.
