Angelina Jolie Sheds Light on the Plight of Gaza’s Children

Famous Hollywood actor Angelina Jolie has criticized the ongoing conflict in Gaza and blamed world leaders for not pushing for a ceasefire. The 48-year-old actress, known for her work with refugees, particularly emphasized the suffering of children in Gaza.

Jolie, who once served as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and has visited refugee camps worldwide, expressed her concern about the situation in Gaza. She described Gaza as an “open-air prison” that has endured this situation for nearly two decades and is now turning into a “mass grave.”

In an Instagram post, Jolie stated, “This is a deliberate attack on a population that cannot escape. Many governments are actively supporting this, and while the world watches, millions of Palestinian civilians, including children, are suffering. They are being punished and dehumanized, denied access to food, medicine, and humanitarian aid, which goes against international law.”

She also mentioned that Israel, Hamas, and world leaders share responsibility for these actions and crimes. Jolie criticized world leaders for not calling for a humanitarian ceasefire and for preventing the UN Security Council from imposing one on both parties.

As of November 2, the Gaza health ministry reported that the death toll since the conflict began had exceeded 9,000. Among these casualties, 3,760 were children, and an additional 32,000 people had been wounded, according to the ministry.
