UN: ‘world stands disgraced’ as shelter for Gaza children is shelled by Israel

The UN agency for Palestinian refugees said the shelling of the school, being operated by the UN as a refugee camp, was a “serious violation of international law”

United Nations officials described the killing of sleeping children as a disgrace to the world and accused Israel of a serious violation of international law after a school in Gaza being used to shelter Palestinian families was shelled on Wednesday.

At least 15 people, mostly children and women, died when the school in Jabaliya refugee camp was hit by five shells during a night of relentless bombardment across Gaza. More than 100 people were injured.

Ban Ki-moon, the UN secretary general, said the attack was “outrageous and unjustifiable” and demanded “accountability and justice”. The UN said its officials had repeatedly given details of the school and its refugee population to Israel.

Fighting in Gaza continued through the day despite a four-hour humanitarian ceasefire called by Israel from 3pm. A crowded market in Shujai’iya was hit in the late afternoon, causing at least 17 deaths, including a journalist, and injuring about 200 people, according to Gaza health officials. They said people had ventured out to shop in the belief a ceasefire was in place. Witnesses said several shells struck as people were running away. Israel said rockets and mortar shells continued to be fired from Gaza.

At the UN school the first shell came just after the early morning call to prayer, when most of those taking shelter were asleep, crammed into classrooms with what few possessions they had managed to snatch as they fled their homes.

About 3,300 people have squashed into Jabaliya Elementary A&B Girls’ School since the Israeli military warned people to leave their homes and neighbourhoods or risk death under intense bombardment. Classroom number one, near the school’s entrance, had become home to about 40 people, mostly women and children.

As a shell blasted through the wall, showering occupants with shrapnel and spattering blood on walls and floors, Amna Zantit, 31, scrambled to gather up her three terrified infants in a panicked bid for the relative safety of the schoolyard. “Everyone was trying to escape,” she said, clutching her eight-month old baby tightly. Minutes later, a second shell slammed through the roof of the two-storey school. At least 15 people were killed and more than 100 injured. Most were women or children.

Pierre Krahenbuhl, commissioner-general of the UN agency for Palestinian refugees, UNRWA, said the shelling of the school was a “serious violation of international law by Israeli forces”.

Krahenbuhl said: “Last night, children were killed as they slept next to their parents on the floor of a classroom in a UN-designated shelter in Gaza. Children killed in their sleep; this is an affront to all of us, a source of universal shame. Today the world stands disgraced.”

Khalil al-Halabi, the UN official in charge of the schools in the area, was quickly on the scene. Bodies were littered over the classroom, and the badly injured lay in pools of blood amid the debris and rubble caused by the blast. “I was shaking,” he said. “It was very, very hard for me to see the blood and hear the children crying.”

By daylight, the detritus of people’s lives was visible among ruins of the classroom: a ball, a bucket, some blankets, tins of food, a pair of flip-flops. The corpses of donkeys, used to haul the meagre possessions of refugees to what they thought was safety, lay at the school’s entrance as two lads wearing Palestinian boy scout scarves collected human body parts for burial. Five of the injured were in a critical condition in hospital.

Halabi was facing impossible requests for advice from those who escaped the carnage. “These people are very angry. They evacuated their homes and came here for protection, not to be killed inside a UN shelter. Now they are asking me whether to stay or leave. They are very frightened. They don’t know what to do.”

The attack on the school was the sixth time that UNRWA premises have been hit since the war in Gaza began more than three weeks ago, the UN said.

Palestinians fled their homes after Israel warned that failure to do so would put their lives at risk. Those at the Jabaliya school were among more than 200,000 who have sought shelter at UN premises in the belief that families would be safe.

Analysis of evidence gathered at the site by UNRWA led to an initial assessment that Israeli artillery had hit the school, causing “multiple civilian deaths and injuries including of women and children and the UNRWA guard who was trying to protect the site. These are people who were instructed to leave their homes by the Israeli army.”

Krahenbuhl added: “Our staff, the very people leading the humanitarian response, are being killed. Our shelters are overflowing. Tens of thousands may soon be stranded in the streets of Gaza, without food, water and shelter if attacks on these areas continue.”

The Israel Defence Forces (IDF) said it was investigating the incident at the UN school. Initial inquiries showed that “Hamas militants fired mortar shells from the vicinity of the school, and [Israeli] soldiers responded by firing towards the origins of the fire”, a spokeswoman said.

A UN source said there was no evidence of militant activity inside the school.

The US, which has been at odds with Isarael’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, over efforts to secure a ceasefire, condemned the school shelling but did not specifically blame Israel.

The incident comes after an explosion at another UN school in Beit Hanoun last week as the playground was filled with families awaiting evacuation. Israel denied responsibility for the deaths, saying a single “errant” shell fired by its forces hit the school playground, which was empty at the time.

UNRWA has rejected the IDF’s account, saying an initial shell was followed by several others within minutes. Reporters who visited the school shortly afterwards said damage and debris was consistent with mortar rounds. UNRWA has found rockets at three of its schools in Gaza in the past three weeks, which it has swiftly condemned as “flagrant violation[s] of the neutrality of our premises”.

Israel says militants from Hamas and other organisations launch rockets from the vicinity of UNRWA properties.

The Israeli military said it had targeted more than 4,100 sites in Gaza since the start of the conflict on 8 July. The death toll in Gaza rose above 1,300 on Wednesday.

Three soldiers were killed in fighting around Khan Younis, bringing the total IDF death toll to 56. Three civilians have died in rocket attacks on Israel.

In an emotional statement, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, said the “destructive cycle of violence has caused untold suffering”.

He said: “You can’t look at the pictures coming from Gaza and Israel without your heart breaking. We must cry to God and beat down the doors of heaven and pray for peace and justice and security. Only a costly and open-hearted seeking of peace between Israeli and Palestinian can protect innocent people, their children and grandchildren, from ever worse violence.”

He called for a renewed “commitment to political dialogue in the wider search for peace and security for both Israeli and Palestinians”.

Support for the military operation among the Israeli public remained solid. A poll published by Tel Aviv university this week found 95% of Israeli Jews felt the offensive was justified. Only 4% believed too much force had been used.

Education becoming Educated in KPK

Imran Khan’s dreams turning into reality in  KPK Education System

As political situation getting tense, Imran Khan, the face of Pakistan’s angry and dissatisfied youth, has their finger on the right pulse. People and general and youth in particular are desperate to witness change, which was dreamt by Imran Khan. In the era of information technology the need of access towards quality education is an optimum need and undoubtedly the biggest challenge not in KPK but in entire Pakistan.

“Education budget would be increased from 2.1% to 5% of the GDP over its five-year term”. This PTI’s Education Policy and they are implementing it slowly but gradually in KPK. Starting from the reconstruction of schools destroyed by Taliban in recent past up to the rehabilitation the pupils KPK government finding hindrances in their tire long journey. But one must understand that in on-going devastation and terrorism people should play their role to support meaningful efforts PTIs leadership. As Imran Khan has pointed out many times that only education can rule the future, so it clears PTIs fragrant stance over their policies for the provincial education system.

PTIs leadership is not taking ruthless decisions to improve system of access to quality education. The leadership believes in evident decisions based on certain research. Instead of re-inventing the wheel PTIs leadership is strengthening the existing system and resources with new vision and techniques. Recently, PTI has turned their promise into reality and the governor house has been converted into a state of the art education complex. Based on most essential needs, 7000 school has been identified for basic latrine and drinking water facilities. More than 12000 schools have been identified for boundary wall and bill has been commenced by the education minister. Currently KPK’s 23% school has dangerous building which require huge funding for repair and maintenance.

In order meet these challenges and to remain vigilant Imran Khan has shared his latest intervention in education which is digitization of schools. Initially it would be with the help of technology i.e. internet, computer and cameras to ensure attendance of teachers, students and allied staff. This is going to be a major break-through in education sector. It will not only enhance level of education but also reduces drop out ratio and corruption rate. Imran also want overseas Pakistanis to adopt one school and monitor via google satellite to see what is going in their adopted school. In this way govt. would be directly accountable for every single penny of the donors. It will also help them stopping foreign aid which will make Pakistan more sovereign.

PTI aims to provide equal opportunity of quality education in a system which caters to every citizen and removes poverty as a barrier for children to realize their potential. Considering the fact of terrorism, a revolutionary step which PTI is planning to take is to continue education during emergency(s). It is mainly with the help of one education system for all, decentralization, enhancement of education budget from 2.1% to 5% in GDP, adult literacy, capacity building of teachers and ICTs. These steps shall definitely lead towards a prosperous Pakistan in the days to come. The longer this persists, the deeper we will find ourselves in this quagmire and we will confront a deeply sustainable society. Finally, my heart believes that only and only education can change the face of Pakistan and this is going to be the greatest strength of PTI. Concluding in Imran Khan’s words that:

“The rich man’s son and poor man’s son will study the same syllabus.”

The writers are students of politics and education with deep understanding of economic issues.

ISB: After Miramshah, two important villages of North Waziristan Boya and Degan, which were known to be strongholds of local and foreign militants, have been cleared by Pakistani armed forces.

“Consolidation of Boya and Degan is in progress,” said a press release issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) on Saturday.

Terrorists are being eliminated and dislodged from their bases in North Waziristan as the operation progresses as per plan, it said.

The press release said that house to house search in Mussaki, Hurmez and Mirali Bazar was being carried out by integrated group of forces.

Terrorists holed up inside Mirali and surrounding areas have been firing rockets and mortars and using heavy machine guns and sniper rifles, said the statement, adding that four terrorists were killed during an exchange of fire last night.

According to ISPR, 12 IEDs were neutralised last night alone, while an IED making factory, huge cache of arms and ammunition and foreign currency were also recovered.

Corps Commander Lieutenant General Khalid Rabbani also visited Mirali, Boya and Degan areas of North Waziristan Agency earlier today and met with the Army troops.

Relief work:

Meanwhile, distribution of relief items for IDPs continues at Bannu, D I Khan and Tank. 1,33,002 ration packs have been distributed so far. The statement said that 1639 tons of rations has been collected so far at 59 relief donations points established by Pakistan Army across the country and transported to Bannu.

It said about 30,000 patients have been treated at the Field Medical Hospital established at Khalifa Gul Nawaz Hospital Bannu by the Army.

About 16,060 cattle have also been provided veterinary treatment, while 40,278 cattle and 5,66,393 poultry have been vaccinated.

Nearly a million people have fled the offensive in North Waziristan, which is aimed at wiping out longstanding militant strongholds in the area, which borders Afghanistan.

Tens of thousands of families have left for the town of Bannu, close to North Waziristan, while hundreds more have moved further afield to the towns of Lakki Marwat, Karak and Dera Ismail Khan since the Operation Zarb-i-Azb began in mid-June.
