Skip to comments.US: ‘Appalled’ by Shelling of UN School in Gaza (Rips Israel)
Posted on 08/03/2014 11:54:03 AM PDT by kristinn
The United States said Sunday it is appalled by the disgraceful shelling by Israel of a United Nations school sheltering some 3,000 displaced people in southern Gaza.
In language that was rare in its directness and severity, the U.S. denounced in a statement issued Sunday the attack earlier in the day that killed 10 people, noting that the school had been designated a protected location.
The coordinates of the school, like all UN facilities in Gaza, have been repeatedly communicated to the Israel Defense Forces, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in the statement. We once again stress that Israel must do more to meet its own standards and avoid civilian casualties.
The U.S. condemnation follows one by U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who depicted the shelling near the Rafah school as both a moral outrage and a criminal act.

How many schools were there in Hiroshima?
The Obamunists may be “l” by it — but the Americans are not.
The Americans are appalled that Hamas uses schools and hospitals as fire bases.
Hamas does its fighting right next to a school on PURPOSE so that Israel shells right back, hits the school, and Hamas can play victim..and it works every single time..Israel shouldn’t even bother listening to these morons, just keep on doing what your doing Israel, I will always have your back!
they speak of suspicions of rocket launches as if the Israelis are simply shooting willy nilly.
The State Dept. supports terrorists. Not surprising when the Sec. State is a traitor to his own country
Dresden, Berlin, Tokyo, Nagasaki, Hamburg...
Gee, maybe Hamas should quit using schools and hospitals as staging areas and munitions dumps. Unlike US leadership, Israel is not run by idiots.
Who is Appalled ? The lights are off in the white House ,it must be the Pro-Hamas people at the White House front gate
White House, MSM...
The U. S. was not appalled.
You asses were appalled.
Three thousand people were in the school and only ten
were killed? So if half of them were civilians, (the
going average) then five of them were terrorists shooting
from the vicinity Got it.
Hey Psaki, Hamas is well aware of Israel’s coordinates, that’s the cause of this mess.
Israel believes and stated today the rockets that hit the school were in fact Hamas fired rockets that went off target thus it was self inflicted.
Cum’on! Those kids blow up pretty fast.
They can just make some more...
I’m not much concerned, but please see post #15 - if the Israelis had been targeting the school, they’d have done a much better job.
It was either an actual school hit by a HAMAS rocket, or a Munitions Dump with desks in it.
Valerie is mad because Hamas is running out of rockets and their tunnels are being demolished. It’s almost over and Hamas is losing.
