UN blames Israel for dozens of Gaza school deaths

SHAFAQNA – According to Muslim News UK reported that ”  A UN inquiry has found that dozens of Palestinians were killed while seeking refuge at UN facilities during last year’s Gaza conflict. The majority of the more than 2,200 people killed in the fighting were Palestinians. The inquiry found that more than 40 Palestinians had been killed and more than 200 others wounded while sheltering at United Nations schools and other facilities in the Gaza Strip in the summer of 2014. “I deplore the fact that at least 44 Palestinians were killed as a result of Israeli actions and at least 227 injured at United Nations premises being used as emergency shelters,” UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon wrote in a cover letter for a summary of the inquiry’s findings released Monday. However, the inquiry did not just place blame on the Israelis. It also said that weapons had been found at three empty UN schools in Gaza, and that there was evidence to suggest that Palestinian militants had “probably” fired from them.
