Death toll of starvation, dehydration in Gaza rises to 40

GAZA, June 14 (YPA) -A  Palestinian child died on Friday morning in Gaza due to starvation and dehydration, bringing the total number of malnutrition-related deaths in the Gaza Strip to 40, according to medical sources.

12-year-old Mustafa Hijazi succumbed to severe malnutrition and dehydration amid a critical shortage of medical supplies at the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Hospital in Deir al-Balah, central Gaza, the sources said.

The Gaza Strip has been enduring relentless Zionist aggression since October 7, facing extreme humanitarian conditions akin to famine, exacerbated by severe shortages of food, water, medicine, and fuel.
