Word comes today that two Israeli tank shells exploded outside of a UN school in Gaza. See the story here. From that article:
“There’s nowhere safe in Gaza. Everyone here is terrorized and traumatized,” said John Ging, the top UN official in Gaza, blaming the international community for allowing the violence to continue.
“I am appealing to political leaders here and in the region and the world to get their act together and stop this,” he said, speaking at Gaza’s largest hospital. “They are responsible for these deaths.”
As atrocious as this attack is it’s refreshing to see someone stand up to world leaders and call on them to resolve this issue. I can only see Israel stopping this attack on Gaza if it is forced to do so by the U.S., U.K., France, or some other powerful country. Here’s hoping that Ging’s call does not go unanswered and that some country presses Israel to stop this violence.
