UNICEF, the United Nations Children's Fund, condemned the killing of four-year-old Israeli Daniel Tragerman who died on Friday from a mortar shell fired from the Gaza Strip.

"The fighting causes children great suffering and it has a destructive influence on their health, their education, and their general well-being," a statement released on Saturday by the organization read.  

Head of UNICEF in Israel Jonny Cline said children who are harmed by hostilities grow up to preserve the conflict.

"It is our duty, and it is in our interest to do all that we can to protect our children for the sake of the future of the region," Cline said.
