White House: shelling of U.N. facility by Israelis ‘totally unacceptable’
Israeli shelling killed at least 15 Palestinians sheltering in a U.N.-run school
The shelling of a U.N. facility in Gaza this week by the Israeli military is “totally unacceptable and totally indefensible,” a White House spokesman said on Thursday.
“The shelling of a U.N. facility that is housing innocent civilians who are fleeing violence is totally unacceptable and totally indefensible,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters, according to Reuters.
Earlier this week, Israeli shelling had killed at least 15 Palestinians sheltering in a U.N.-run school and another 17 near a street market, Gaza’s Health Ministry said. The ministry said more than 100 people were also wounded in the attack.
