On July 24, JewishPress.com reported that both Hamas and the IDF hit a UNRWA school during heavy fighting between the two sides. Hamas were firing anti-tank missiles at IDF troops, and a Hamas rocket reportedly also hit the school grounds.

Some 20%-30% of Hamas rockets crash within Gaza’s borders.

16 Gazans were killed, apparently during the course of the battle.

Following an IDF investigation of the event, the IDF released the footage of an errant IDF shell landing in an open courtyard.

The IDF claims it confirmed that their shell hit an empty school courtyard and rejects the claim that they killed anyone.

Hamas has been using schools for storing weapons, and for their human shield value when attacking the IDF or launching rockets at Israel.
