‘Rockets in second school’

22 Jul, 2014

The UN Relief and Works Agency says it finds rockets in one of its schools in Gaza. The second such discovery in a week prompts the agency pledge a ‘comprehensive investigation into the circumstances surrounding this incident.

Today, in the course of the regular inspection of its premises, UNRWA discovered rockets hidden in a vacant school in the Gaza Strip. As soon as the rockets were discovered, UNRWA staff were withdrawn from the premises, and so we are unable to confirm the precise number of rockets. The school is situated between two other UNRWA schools that currently each accommodate 1,500 internally displaced persons.

Israeli Foreign Ministry:

How many more schools will have to be abused by Hamas missile squads before the international community will intervene […] How many times can it turn its head the other way and pretend that it just doesn’t see?
