Late last night Israeli tank shells hit another school which was a refugee camp housing displaced refugees seeking shelter from the Israeli massacre that is currently ongoing in Gaza. The UN warned Israel 17 times that this building was occupied and that it was housing civilians yet they continued to shell it.


refugee camp where 16 were killed was housing the displaced
- WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT

- Israeli tank strikes smash into UN school serving as a refugee shelter - pushing the Gaza death toll over 1,200

-UN aid chief blasts Israel, saying: 'This is a source of universal shame. Today the world stands disgraced'

-Some 200,000 Gazans have fled to UN schools following calls by Israel to evacuate homes ahead of bombings

-One refugee who survived latest attack cries: 'Where will we go next? We fled and the Israelis are following us'

-UN spokesman calls on international community to help stop the bloodshed, saying: 'No place is safe in Gaza'

-British Foreign Secretary offers no assurance of an imminent ceasefire 'if people are insisting on preconditions'

-Israeli military has declared a four-hour ceasefire in some areas of the Gaza Strip for humanitarian reasons

Israel was warned no fewer than 17 times that a school it destroyed with tank strikes, killing 16 Palestinians and injuring 125 others, had been housing refugees, the UN said today.

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) said children were killed as they slept next to their parents on the floor of a classroom in the Jabaliya refugee camp when shells smashed into the complex overnight.

UNRWA Commissioner-General Pierre Krähenbühl said it was the sixth time one of the organisation's schools had been struck by Israeli bombardments during the 23-day conflict.

He said: 'This is an affront to all of us, a source of universal shame. Today the world stands disgraced.
'We know that there were multiple civilian deaths and injuries including of women and children and the UNRWA guard who was trying to protect the site.

'These are people who were instructed to leave their homes by the Israeli army.

'The precise location of the Jabalia Elementary Girls School and the fact that it was housing thousands of internally displaced people was communicated to the Israeli army seventeen times to ensure its protection - the last being at 8.50pm last night, just hours before the fatal shelling.'

Just another day, just another war-crime that Israel will not be held accountable for...

Can there be one day where Israel does not bomb a hospital or refugee camp?

Surely no one can continue defending this Israeli offensive as the atrocities pile up.

They had nowhere else to go...

Israel prefers to get people in shelters like this so they can get more kills per shell. They learned this tactic from that monster Sharon who was fond of herding groups of people into buildings and then shelling it. What is sad is that some people still believe the "Israel tries to not kill civilians" BS.

Once could be a mistake, maybe even twice but I would seriously question the competence of the whole chain of command.
What we are seeing is a Nazi style extermination in Palestine.
How will the israeli propaganda machine keep covering all of these atrocities.
At the very least the murdering done over there has definitely gone mainstream.
Maybe the EU has the moxy to shut these killers down as it seems the US is too in bed with them.

The question I ask is: did this really happen or is it part of a propoganda campaign?
Also, if it did happen, were there really refugees in there, or was it actually an enemy post?

Sorry, Hamas tactics have been to store weaponry in UN locations and schools... Defending yourself from these type of fighters is a dirty business.... take a look at Hamas.... take a look at ISIS...

I guess your solution is to shower them with rose water?

and... stop using caps in your title... crass and vacant...

What is sad is that some people fail to distinguish genocide from war.

If Israel wanted genocide, there wouldn't be any palestinians left alive today!

Do you honestly believe that this is a genocidal attempt?

I cannot even read this stuff anymore. How can anyone condone it is well beyond my capacity of understanding. How anyone can do things like this is evil incarnate.

May God's will somehow be done... certainly man's will is only evil now.

Israel doesn't give a fig or a feather what the UN says.
And all the UN seems to be doing is telling them "don't do this"or 'don't do that", and when Israel ignores them, they go
"tsk, tsk, tsk."

Neither Palestine nor Israel are listening to anyone right now.
Have you seen them (civilians) from both countries talk on tv?
I have.
They are both singing songs, wishing their enemies/ their enemies' kids to die.
They both have seem to lost their grip , and just want more deaths.

They are turning into animals.

I'm afraid there is no solution to this,let the 2 countries deal with themselves, until they've had enough/ come to a solution/ or one of them wins the war.

If israel wanted to genocide all the Palestinians it would take all of an hour or less.
And im damn sure Israelis want rockets to stop hitting their neighborhoods.
Maybe the "refugee center un schools" shouldnt double as rocket launch pads and weapon depots

Take all the guns away from Hamas, there will be no war. Take all the guns away from Israel, there will be no Israel. Think about that for a minute.

This IS god's will. Make no mistake about it, god is a creation of man.

It fills me with rage when people not only condone what is going on over there, but also blame the victims.

I think its time that the politicians, corporations, soldiers and whoever else supports and benefits from these abominations are taken out. Preferably held to account in an international court of law, but if they happen to die before hand then thats no big loss to the human race now.

Neither side is right. The UN is the worst of them all. So lets let Israel know that Hamas is hiding weapons in schools and refugee areas all over the place, then when fighting begins let them know where the highest concentration of refugees are and tell them not to shell the place, all while Hamas is right outside the door firing at Israel.

UN needs to step up and get the refugees OUT of the area and quit announcing where they are.

Funny, that's what I exactly propose for US, Germany, Ukraine, Russia, Iraq, North Korea...never mind, this list includes every other country.
Want to know why? Because human kind is stupid, and will never learn from our past. So, why just not speed the process up of self-destruction by thousand and get this over with already? I see no other way out from this horrible capitalistic world.

The article says that Hamas was near the school not at the school.


The Israeli military responded by saying Hamas militants near the facility had fired mortar bombs and Israeli forces had shot back.

If these morons are too incompetent to use their weapons properly then they should be stripped of them.

I see you have no clue as to what the word genocide means do you?
gen·o·cide
noun
noun: genocide; plural noun: genocides
the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation.
Over a thousand people have been killed in Gaza so far and most of them are civilians. So how many people there have to die before you consider it genocide?

This is not genocide. Israel havent targeted palestinians because of their ethnicity lol.... they are simply targeting Hamas due to their persistent terrorist threat and unfortunately palestinian civilians are being manipulated by their own hamas 'government' and are therefore dying!

The article said this.

The Israeli military responded by saying Hamas militants near the facility had fired mortar bombs and Israeli forces had shot back.

A military spokeswoman said: 'Earlier this morning, militants fired mortar shells at (Israeli) soldiers from the vicinity of the UNRWA school in Jebalya (refugee camp).

Sorry but that makes anything close a target.
Hamas is happy to sacrifice children for political gain.

1. There are now 7 million Palestinian refugees (4.3 million registered with the UNHCR); 85% of Christian Palestinians have fled.

2. 1.5 million Palestinian Israelis live under race-based Apartheid laws (Nazi- and Apartheid-style compulsory race-based ID at all times; race-based marriage prohibition laws; race-based discrimination over property acquisition, property rights, social participation, travel in their own country and family reunion).

3. 4 million Occupied Palestinians are held as prisoners in increasingly abusive conditions in what outstanding Jewish American scholar Professor Noam Chomsky of the 63-Nobel-Laureate MIT describes as a “Prison” (they are held without charge or trial in effectively several major Concentration Camps – Gaza, Samaria and Judaea; their capital city has been stolen and violated together with the Third most Sacred site in Islam).

4. Post-invasion excess deaths (violent and non-violent avoidable deaths from bombs or bullets or deprivation, respectively; deaths that did not have to happen) now total 0.3 million and post-invasion under-5 infant deaths total 0.2 million.

5. Annual Occupied Palestinian avoidable under-5 infant deaths total 2,400; annual violent deaths total about 800 (20% children); annual excess deaths total 5,000 – deaths in custody at the hands of a racist, Apartheid regime.

6. It has cost the American taxpayer about $3 trillion (see: mwcnews.net...… ) plus a further $3.5 trillion accrual cost of the racist Zionist-backed War on Terror (see: mwcnews.net...… ).
