The Ministry of Higher Education in the Gaza Strip has said that 100 schools have been damaged in Israeli attacks since July 8, warning that half a million students were suffering from "trauma" as a result of the ongoing Zionist aggression.

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, according to the report.

The ministry demanded that the United Nations and human rights institutions try to stop the bombardment of education centers in the Gaza Strip and hold the Israeli military and political leaders responsible for the ongoing destruction of Palestinian life and educational facilities.

According to figures provided by emergency services, the total number of Palestinians killed since the Israeli operation on July 8 stands at 437. More than 3,000 people have also been injured in the attacks.
