1,000 child psychologists, trauma experts urge the release of captive children
"Every day, every hour, every minute spent in captivity leaves its lifetime mark on the souls and bodies of the children," the authors of the letter say.
By JERUSALEM POST STAFF

More than a thousand experts and practitioners from the fields of child psychology, child welfare, childhood trauma, and the rights of children have signed an open letter to Secretary-General of the UN Antonio Guterres calling on the international community to demand the immediate release of all children kidnapped by Hamas on October 7 and held captive in the Gaza Strip.

Of the 230 hostages in Gaza, about 30 are children, the letter noted. "Six of these children are babies, some of them still nursing." The letter noted that "some of the abductees are in need of medication, special nutrition, or treatment."

"Among them are Kfir, a 9-month-old baby still breastfeeding, and Avigail, a 3-year-old who witnessed the savage murder of her parents."
