Israeli Air Strike KILLED 27 people on Gaza UN School

25

Israeli launched a fresh air strike on a United Nations school in Gaza and has resulted in the deaths of more than 27 people, per reports from Palestine.

WHY ISRAEL LAUNCHED THE AIRSTRIKE

Before now, the school, located in the Nuseirat refugee camp, was housing hundreds of people who had been displaced by the ongoing war.

The Israeli military confirmed the strike, stating it targeted a ‘Hamas compound’ within the school.

Local journalists reported that two missiles were fired at classrooms on the top floor of the school by an Israeli warplane.

HAMAS’ OFFICIAL REPORT

The Hamas media office reported at least 27 fatalities from the strike and accused Israel of perpetrating a ‘horrific massacre.’

According to Palestine reports, ambulances and rescue teams were seen rushing to transport the injured and deceased to a nearby hospital.

Meanwhile, footage on social media showed the aftermath of the strike, with destroyed classrooms and bodies wrapped in destroyed buildings.

Ismail al-Thawabta, the director of the Hamas media office, denied Israeli claims that the school concealed a Hamas command post.

‘The occupation uses false fabricated stories to justify the brutal crime it conducted against dozens of displaced people,’ he told Reuters.

IDF REACTS TO THE AIRSTRIKE

In a statement, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) described the strike as a ‘precise’ operation against a Hamas compound embedded within the UNRWA school in Nuseirat.

The IDF claimed the strike eliminated Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists involved in the October 7 attack on southern Israel, which resulted in around 1,200 deaths and 251 hostages taken.
