The market bombing came hours after Israelis bombed a UN school in Jabalia refugee camp which was sheltering some 3,300 homeless Gazans, killing 16.
"This morning a UN school sheltering thousands of Palestinian families suffered a reprehensible attack," UN chief Ban Ki-moon said. "It is unjustifiable, and demands accountability and justice."
In a statement released earlier Wednesday, U.N.R.W.A. commissioner-general Pierre Krähenbühl said U.N. schools had been struck six times during the present conflict, and that the attack on Jabalia Elementary Girls School appears to have been executed with “Israeli artillery.”
As is the case in other attacks on U.N. sites, Krähenbühl said the Israel Defense Forces had been given the location of the shelter (in Jabalia’s case, the agency said it warned the I.D.F. 17 times).
“We have moved beyond the realm of humanitarian action alone,” Krähenbühl said. “We are in the realm of accountability. I call on the international community to take deliberate international political action to put an immediate end to the continuing carnage.”
At least nine Gaza hospitals have also been attacked by the Israelis, and an Israeli bombing of a crowded market killed an additional 15 Palestinians on July 30.
A United States defense official told CNN network news Pentagon sends ammunition to of plans to further supply Israel with ammunition, reportedly from American stockpiles within the nation. The Pentagon later said it had granted an Israeli request for ammunition, including some from a stockpile stored by the US military on the ground in Israel for emergency use by the Judaic state, which needs the ammo to massacre many hundreds more of Palestinian civilians.
The US Congress and “Right wing Radio” and TV applaud the massacre of Palestinian civilians and blame it on the victims. Palestinians are not “Jews,” so they can be mass-murdered without fear of the consequences or a holocaust museum to commemorate their deaths. Those type of elaborate memorials are reserved for The Holy People and allied master races.
