UN School hit by Israeli Fire in Gaza

A Palestinian man cries over the body of his son who died when a United Nations school for refugees was hit by an Israeli tank shell in the Kamal Adwan hospital in Beit Lahiya, Gaza Strip, on July 24. At least 15 Palestinians were killed, among them seven children, and some 200 injured when an U.N.-operated school north of Gaza City was struck by Israeli tank shells, the Gaza Health Ministry said. Witnesses, who were in the school run by the United Nations for Relief and Work Agency (UNRWA), said Israeli tanks fired four shells at the school.
