GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The Ministry of Higher Education in Gaza said on Saturday that 100 schools have been damaged in Israeli attacks in the last 12 days, warning that half a million students were suffering from "trauma" as a result of the ongoing assault.

The ministry said in a report that 50 percent of the victims in the ongoing Israeli offensive on the Gaza Strip have been children or students, and hundreds of the 2,385 injuries have been children and students as well.

The report highlighted that half a million minors in the Gaza Strip were suffering from trauma as a result of the offensive, which entered its 13th day on Sunday, and that large numbers of children were suffering from panic or fear attacks as a result of the assault.

At least 100 educational facilitates, including kindergartens and institutions of higher education, have been damaged, meanwhile.

The ministry demanded the international community, the United Nations, and human rights institutions act and hold Israeli military and political leaders responsible for the ongoing destruction of Palestinian life and Palestinian educational facilities.
