Due to UN sanctions the hospital was lacking many medicines, and the civilians suffered due to lack of food as well. <br />
 Former U.N. Humanitarian Coordinator in Iraq Denis Halliday estimated the resulting deaths : "Two hundred thirty-nine thousand children 5 years old and under" as of 1998.<br />
<br />
The sanctions against Iraq were a near-total financial and trade embargo imposed by the United Nations Security Council on the Iraqi Republic.<br />
