UNRWA calls for an investigation into Israeli attacks against its facilities
-
An official at the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) said that the organization is calling for investigations to be opened into Israeli attacks on its buildings and centers that shelter displaced civilians.

UNRWA's Director of Media and Communications, Saint-Juliette Touma, stressed in an interview with the American newspaper "The Washington Post" on Friday that "United Nations facilities are protected under international humanitarian law and must be safe shelters for civilians."

The UN official also called for "investigations into all violations against the United Nations, including attacks on its buildings."

Earlier Friday, 3 Palestinians were killed and 15 others were injured in an Israeli bombing that targeted the “Asmaa School” affiliated with UNRWA, which houses displaced persons in the Beach Camp, west of Gaza City.

This is the second school targeted by the Israeli occupation army within two days, the day after it committed a massacre yesterday, Thursday, in a school housing 6,000 displaced people in the Nuseirat camp in the central Gaza Strip.

According to data from the government media office in Gaza, the Israeli bombing of the Nuseirat School resulted in 40 martyrs, including 14 children and 9 women, and the injury of 74 displaced people, including 23 children and 18 women.

The Israeli war on Gaza, which entered its ninth month, left about 120,000 Palestinians dead and wounded, most of them children and women, and nearly 10,000 missing amid massive destruction and famine that claimed the lives of dozens of people.
