Investigation: IDF Rejects Claim it Killed 16 Gazans in UNRWA School [video]

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.

  7. I believe Israel.

  8. R.d. Morgan says:

    They have this British reporter on CNN who has been foaming at the mouth ranting all day how he can prove Israel is guilty in this event…Seems to have an agenda…Not exactly a believable source…..

  9. Joi Bangla says:

    The latest “ceasefire” that Israel and Hamas agreed on was a total flop. Israel through out history did not and will not stick to its ceasefire agreements.
    As soon as my family in Gaza got electricity they updated me on this “ceasefire.” My cousin told me “When they announced the ceasefire for 24 hours. We left our homes to buy our needs. Then we went to Al-Shaja’ya (area of the previous massacre in Gaza) to help the injured.”
    He continued, “when we arrived to Al-Shaja’ya, Israeli airplanes were actually heard in the sky. Thinking that we were under a “ceasefire” we continued our tasks. After a couple of minutes, Israeli airforce started dropping bombs and attacking the area! Everyone started rushing for cover and many were injured.”
    That was no cease-fire, that was a cease-media.

    i knew it all along…

  17. Ronnie Pleet says:

    Hamas didn’t notify no cease fire so more Gazans would be killed for publicity

  49. Jay Adler says:

    Disproportionate military response is not a war crime. Fact.
    Putting civilians in harm by conducting military operations near civilian areas is a war crime. Fact
    Firing rockets with intent to injure civilians is a war crime. Fact.

  50. Jay Adler says:

    Firing off rockets from schools and hospitals makes these locations viable military targets, internationally agreed upon. That is a fact.

  51. Never expect the UN or the liberal press to tell the truth it won’t happen.
