Israel Hits Terrorist Rocket Launch Pad/UN School (Video)
Palestinian medical officials say at least three people are dead in an Israeli airstrike near a UN school in the northern Gaza Strip.
It is the second deadly Israeli airstrike to hit a UN school in the past few hours.
Palestinian health official Said Joudeh says three people were killed and four wounded in the airstrike in the northern Gaza town of Jebaliya.
He says the school was turned into a shelter for people displaced by an Israeli offensive against the Hamas militant group.
In case you were wondering… UN schools are used by terrorists to shoot off rockets at Israel.
The IDF YouTube Channel even has video of mortor bombs being shot at Israel from Beit Hanoun UN Elementary School in Gaza back in 2007:
Hamas and other terror organizations in Gaza make deliberate use of civilians living in populated areas as human shields.
The international Red Cross also was looking into reports that a Red Crescent ambulance station in the northern town of Jebaliya was hit during the night.
Of course, terrorists even use ambulances in attacks on Israel, too.
