Again, Hamas Terrorists Use U.N. School as Base for Attacks

Hamas used human shields again when terror operatives fired mortars from a U.N. school in Jabaliah / Jabalyah, Northern Gaza today.

Imad Abu Askhar and Hassan Abu Askhar were among the two (2) Hamas slain gunmen identified amongst the dead.

An initial IDF inquiry concluded that in “response to the incoming enemy fire, [Israeli] forces returned mortar fire to the source.” which came directly from the school.

This is yet another example of Hamas repeatedly using civilian population centers as human shields.

What were U.N. school authorities doing to prevent such blatant violations of the U.N.’s use of the property for educational purposes? What will Ban Ki-moon have to say about the latest incident using children and school employees as human shields?

The following video taken by an IAF drone in 2007 shows an attack in progress when terrorists launched rockets from a U.N.-operated school in Beit Hanoun, Gaza. U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon deplored the attack, calling it a an “abuse of UN facilities, which is a serious violation of the UN’s privileges and immunities…[and the type of] actions that endanger the lives of civilians, especially children.”
