Another horror from Gaza

According to testimonies gathered by the UN, Israeli soldiers evacuated around 110 Palestinians to a single-storey house in Zeitoun, south-east Gaza. The evacuees were instructed to stay indoors for their own safety but 24 hours later the Israeli army shelled the house with rockets. Around half the Palestinians sheltering in the house were children, OCHA said.....

At least 30 people were killed...

And, the UN has suspended aid operations after the Israelis attacked an approved aid truck at a border crossing killing the driver.

(Including the UN school attack, this would mark at least three major incidents where the Israelis bombed supposedly "safe" targets, registered with the Israeli military.)
