An Israeli attack kills 33 people in a Gaza school full of displaced families


Israel bombed a United Nations-run school protecting displaced Palestinian families. The Israeli airstrike killed at least 33 people, including women and children.

Israel claimed on Thursday that the school was being used as a Hamas complex, without providing evidence. The Israeli military said it was not aware of any civilian casualties in the attack on the school in the Nuseirat refugee camp, and later said it had confirmed that nine militants had been killed.

Victims of the school strike – including three women and nine children – were taken to a hospital in nearby Deir al-Balah, as documented by hospital records and an Associated Press journalist. The hospital has already been overwhelmed by a flood of ambulances since Israeli forces launched a new offensive in central Gaza this week.

More than 36,000 Palestinians have been killed by eight months of Israeli bombing and ground offensives in Gaza. according to the Ministry of Healthin which no distinction is made between combatants and civilians.
