UN Demands Independent Probe into Israeli Attack on Gaza school

Date:

Israel’s war on Gaza, now in its 275th day, has killed at least 38,098 Palestinians – majority of them women and children – and wounded 87,705, with 10,000+ estimated to be buried under the debris of bombed homes and 9,500+ abducted by Tel Aviv.

GAZA – The UN Agency for Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA) called for an “independent investigation” into an Israeli attack that killed at least 16 Palestinians at a school housing displaced people in central Gaza.

The Israeli army claimed that it had targeted Palestinian gunmen inside the UN-run school in the Nuseirat refugee camp on Saturday.

“Once again, UNRWA school hit by the Israeli Forces. The school, in the Middle Areas, was home to nearly 2,000 internally displaced,” UNRWA Commissioner-General Philippe Lazzarini said in a statement on X.

“A re-occurring claim (among others) from Israel is that our facilities are being used by Palestinian armed groups. These are claims that I take very seriously,” said Lazzarini. “It is exactly why I have repeatedly called for independent investigations to ascertain the facts and identify those responsible for attacks on UN premises or their misuse.”

The UNRWA chief said more than half of the agency’s facilities have been hit, killing 520 people and injuring nearly 1,600 others.
