NEWS FROM GAZA`S GENOCIDE .

“”” Israeli strikes have killed at least 40 people who took refuge inside a UN school in the Gaza Strip, medics have said.The strike on Tuesday hit a school run by the UN agency for Palestinian refugees, Unrwa, in the northern town of Jabaliya.Medical sources at two Gaza hospitals said two tank shells exploded outside the school, where hundreds of Palestinians had sought refuge from the Israeli attacks.The toll quickly rose as rescuers struggled through the rubble.In addition to the dead, several dozen people were wounded, the officials said.Doctors said all the dead were either people sheltering in the school or residents of Jabalya refugee camp, in the north of the Gaza Strip.

John Ging, director of operations in Gaza for Unrwa, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, said Unrwa regularly provided the Israeli army with exact geographical coordinates of its facilities and the school was in a built-up area. More than 640 people have been killed and 2800 others wounded in the 11-day operation, most of them civilians.

Among the dead on Monday was a family of seven from Shati refugee camp, who were killed by Israeli navy shelling.Three siblings from one family, as well as a girl and her grandfather, also died in the Zeitoun neighbourhood of Gaza during artillery shelling.Emergency medical services have also come under attack with the al-Awda hospital in Jabaliya being hit by two Israeli shells, foreign human rights activists said.”Two consecutive shells just landed in the busy car park 15 metres from the entrance to the emergency room,” Alberto Arce of the International Solidarity Movement said in a statement.”The entrance of the emergency room was damaged. At the time of the shelling ambulances were bringing in the wounded that keep pouring in.”

On Sunday, an Israeli raid killed also at least four paramedics as they tried to reach wounded Palestinians. Ambulances have also been hit in the attacks, Palestinian sources said.“”” [Al JAzeera]
