UN boss condemns attack on innocent in Gaza
GUTERRES... this war is having a staggering and unacceptable number of civilian casualties

UNITED Nations Secretary General António Guterres on Sunday said he was deeply shocked that two United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) schools were struck in less than 24 hours in Gaza by Israeli forces.

"Dozens of people — many women and children — were killed and injured as they were seeking safety in United Nations premises," he said in a statement. "Hundreds of thousands of Palestinian civilians are seeking shelter at United Nations facilities throughout Gaza due to the intensified fighting. I reaffirm that our premises are inviolable," he added.

"This war is having a staggering and unacceptable number of civilian casualties, including women and children, every day. This must stop.

"I reiterate my call for an immediate humanitarian ceasefire. I also want to express my deep appreciation for all the mediation efforts led by the Government of Qatar," said Guterres.
