Thursday, 31 July 2014 - 12:49
As another United Nations school serving as a shelter for Palestinians in Gaza was hit by shells last morning, killing children, senior UN officials strongly condemned the attacks and warned against the targeting of civilians.
“Nothing is more shameful than attacking sleeping children,” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said immediately upon his arrival in San Jose, Costa Rica, for an official visit.
“I condemn this attack in the strongest possible terms. It is outrageous. It is unjustifiable. And it demands accountability and justice,” he added.
