Siege takes toll on Gaza children

Siege takes toll on Gaza children

AlJazeeraEnglish June 13, 2010International pressure has been mounting on Israel to lift its blockade of Gaza since the deadly raid on an aid flotilla bound for the Palestinian territory.

The UN has said 80 per cent of people there depend on food hand-outs.

But Israeli officials insist that there is no humanitarian crisis in the enclave.

UN aid workers inside Gaza, however, see a different reality.

Al Jazeera's Nicole Johnston reports from Gaza, where it has been reported that about 14 per cent of children suffer from stunted growth due to malnutrition.
