At least 15 dead in Israeli shelling of Gaza school: Health Ministry
Reuter ^ | 07/24/2014 | BY NIDAL AL-MUGHRABI AND DAN WILLIAMS

Posted on 07/24/2014 9:50:22 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

Israeli forces shelled a U.N.-run school sheltering Palestinians in the northern Gaza strip, the Gaza health ministry said on Thursday, killing at least 15 people and raising the conflict's death toll to nearly 750.

Israel Radio said, without citing a source, that most of those killed at the United Nations school were children.

The Israeli military had no immediate comment on the incident reported as a truce between the Jewish state and Hamas-led Islamist guerrillas remained elusive, despite intensive attempts at mediation.

If WW2 was held today, Reuters would report Nazi propaganda as fact.

Maybe Hamas could’ve used some of that concrete to build shelters in their schools as the Israelis do rather than to build tunnels into Israel for their terrorists.

Palestinians need to weed out Hamas filth - then things will get better.

If this were WW2, Gaza would look like Dresden.

Well, the Palestinians will need to stop keeping ammo and weapons in schools. That or keep the kids out of places where they keep their armor

It is difficult to see the problem here. The palis elected the hamas because they support their terrorism. palis/hamas...what’s the difference?

And Israel told that school to evacuate..Hamas made sure that did not happen so the children would die..typical Hamas propaganda..and it works every time because the media, and the UN are anti Israel

UN run says it all.

Every UN run school has rockets, and UN funds
Hamas (along with the US State Dept, Obama, and Qatar).

From Yesterday:

For second time, rockets found at UN school in Gaza

‘How many more schools will have to be abused by Hamas missile squads before the international community will intervene?’ Foreign Ministry fumes’

“For the second time in less than a week, rockets have been found in a school in Gaza operated by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, the body said.

“Today, in the course of the regular inspection of its premises, UNRWA discovered rockets hidden in a vacant school in the Gaza Strip,” the organization said in a statement issued Tuesday. “As soon as the rockets were discovered, UNRWA staff were withdrawn from the premises, and so we are unable to confirm the precise number of rockets. The school is situated between two other UNRWA schools that currently each accommodate 1,500 internally displaced persons.”

Those dastardly Israelis.

It’s appaling that all of their shelling and bombing has been directed only at schools, hospitals, and mosques...resulting in the deaths of all of those innocent Muslim children...and not killing even one terrorist.

When are they going to report on the missiles fired indiscriminately into Israel?

At least in this case it was a mistake.

Yup, I spelled “appalling” incorrectly.

It’s GW’s fault.

Are we sure someone didn’t ship them some bodies from somewhere else or they didn’t off these people themselves? I’d put nothing past Hamas, the PLO, the PA or Hezbollah.

Is this the same UNschool that the UN found rockets in and gave the rockets back to the terrorists? Israel told the people to leave in the first place. This has to be a UN/Hamas setup to effect world opinion.

If this was WWII Rooters would be condemning the Jews for resisting going to the showers.

Wait..now I am hearing that perhaps it was a HAMAS rocket that hit the school, since rockets have been fired from that UN school(Gee, a UN school, what a shock)

why do the media and others take the Gaza Ministry of Health stats at face value?

How is it that it’s only Palestinians that are ever reported as killed?

Hamas never looses anyone, amazing

They should have arrested the UN people, interrogated them, and then found out who instructed them to allow the rockets. Once that happened, take out the UN people who set it up. When is enough, enough?

In other words, the UN allows Hamas terror group to have and use rockets to attack a sovereign country.
