UNRWA Strongly Condemns Israeli Shelling of Its School in Gaza as a Serious Violation of International Law
“…a source of universal shame. Today the world stands disgraced… ” “We have visited the site and gathered evidence. We have analysed fragments, examined craters and other damage. Our initial assessment is that it was Israeli artillery that hit our school, in which 3,300 people had sought refuge. We believe there were at least three impacts. … there were multiple civilian deaths and injuries including of women and children … These are people who were instructed to leave their homes by the Israeli army.”
“I condemn in the strongest possible terms this serious violation of international law by Israeli forces. This is the sixth time that one of our schools has been struck. Our staff, the very people leading the humanitarian response are being killed. “
- United Nations Relief and Works Agency Commissioner General
