Gaza: Israel Accused of Attacking Schools, “War Crimes,” “Atrocities”

Palestinian medical officials say the death toll from an Israeli airstrike outside a United Nations school in the Gaza Strip has risen to 30.

The attack occurred about 10 yards (meters) outside the school in northern Gaza. It was the second deadly Israeli attack to strike a UN school in the past few hours.

Hospital director Bassam Abu Warda confirmed the 30 deaths from the second airstrike.

In both cases, the schools had been used as shelters for people displaced by Israel’s offensive against Hamas militants. More than 500 people have been killed in the 11-day operation, including many civilians.

A top U.N. humanitarian official has condemned the violence and demanded an investigation.

Israel isn’t commenting. But it accuses Hamas of using schools, mosques and residential areas for cover.

In Damascus, Syria, Bashar Assad told French President  Sarkozy the Israeli assault on the coastal strip of Gaza was a “war crime” and an “aggression” that Israel must halt.

    Israel, has a history of killing innocent non combatants, just look at Israel past, or better yet Look up the attack on the uss liberty. Research what the sailors on deck had to say, and not what LBJ said.
