IDF Attacks In Gaza: Headlines say “Israel killed dozens at the UN school”

News outlets quoted Hamas’ Ministry of Health. The IDF revealed on the terrorists who were killed at the UNRWA school.

The world is currently focused on the recent IDF (Israel Defense Forces) attack on a UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency) school in the Nuseirat refugee camp, located in the center of the Gaza Strip. Major news outlets, including CNN, have reported that according to the Ministry of Health in Gaza, which operates under Hamas rule, 45 Palestinians were killed in this attack.

Early this morning, the IDF issued a statement clarifying that the target of the attack was a compound housing Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists involved in the massacre on October 7. The IDF reported that three classrooms within the school, where these terrorists were allegedly present, were specifically targeted using relatively small and precise weapons.

Claims and Counterclaims

The IDF has indicated plans to release the names of the terrorists killed in the strike to substantiate their claims. However, no such evidence has been presented at that time, which has led to the Palestinian narrative gaining widespread attention. Historically, the IDF has provided evidence of terrorist activities within UNRWA facilities when conducting similar operations.

The IDF spokesperson emphasized to foreign media that 20 to 30 terrorists were present in the area at the time of the attack. They also asserted that the IDF is “not aware of any harm to Palestinian civilians,” although the incident has drawn significant scrutiny. The spokesperson further stated that prior to the attack, extensive measures were taken to minimize civilian casualties.

The attack took place before 3:00 AM, with Palestinians reporting that the school, which was being used as a shelter for the displaced, was hit. Approximately an hour later, the IDF confirmed the operation, emphasizing the presence of a Hamas compound within the school and reiterating the efforts made to avoid civilian harm.

The incident forms part of a broader military campaign by the IDF. Yesterday, a divisional attack was launched in the al-Boreij region in the center of the Gaza Strip. This operation involved a combined assault by fighter jets alongside ground forces.

As the situation continues to develop, global reactions remain polarized, with ongoing debates over the implications and justifications of the IDF’s actions in Gaza.
