Hospitals and medical personnel in the Gaza Strip struggle to cope with the very high number of Palestinians injured in Israeli attacks.

Hospitals in the besieged Palestinian territory have been receiving patients, most of them children, on a daily basis.

Most of the children who seek treatment at hospitals suffer from burns in explosions. Some of the kids also suffer from trauma.

The materials being used in the Shifa hospital in Gaza City are not suitable, reports say.

Over 1,900 people have so far been killed and nearly 10,000 others injured in the Israeli military aggression against Gaza that began on July 8.

Latest tallies show that nearly 470 Palestinian children have so far lost their lives in the Israeli attacks.

On Sunday, the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas and Israel agreed on a new 72-hour ceasefire.

According to a report, seven Palestinians were killed in Gaza City on Sunday.

The Tel Aviv regime imposed a crippling blockade on the Gaza Strip in 2007. Since then, Palestinians in the coastal sliver have gone through difficult times struggling to lead a normal life.
