Ban Ki-moon condemns attack on school in Gaza

Palestinian officials blame Israel for the deaths of more than 15 people, including children, in the attack on a school, which housed several Palestinians refugees in the Gaza Strip. Israel responds by saying that's hindsight not ruling out the hypothesis of a ratchet of Hamas have caused the deaths.

The Secretary-General of the United Nations continues to seek the settlement of the conflict:

"I was shocked and horrified by what happened at the UN school in Beit Hanoun. Yes, totally unacceptable. I condemn, strongly. So I say to both the Israelis and Hamas, the Palestinians, that is morally wrong to kill its own people, "said Ban Ki-moon.

At the time of the attack several families were gathered in the school yard awaiting the arrival of a red cross vehicle that would collect them. The death of civilians continues, among Palestinians under Israel's accusations:

"Why combat continues? Why we get to where we're going? I think there's a simple explanation, which was given by the Foreign Ministers of the European Union in a statement a few days ago. Hamas is using their own civilians, Palestinian civilians as human shields, "said Yigal Palmor, spokesman for the Israeli Foreign Minister.

On the eighteenth day of the offensive Israeli troops are stationed near the border with Gaza.

More than 140 thousand Palestinians fled, many seeking shelter in buildings managed by United Nations relief and Works Agency for Palestine refugees.
