At least 50 people were killed in the al-Fakhoora School bombing, the Palestinian Ministry of Health said on Saturday. It added that hundreds of people were killed or injured in the two attacks. Reporting form Khan Younis in southern Gaza, Al Jazeera’s Hani Mahmoud said Israeli attacks on schools, hospitals and public facilities “seems to be a trend right now”. He said added that multiple airstrikes inflicted severe destruction on both schools. “Almost 200 people have been killed in these attacks and the number is expected to increase as there are many under the rubble. People are using shovels and their bare hands to dig people out,” he explained. Hundreds of people are believed to have taken refuge in both schools to escape constant Israeli attacks. The attack on al-Fakhoora is said to have occurred in the early morning, while the attack on Tal al-Zaatar occurred later in the day. “Dead bodies are everywhere and medial teams are trying to evacuate the wounded,” said Al Jazeera correspondent Tareq Abou Azzoum, reporting from Gaza. He said with the continuing fighting amid Israel’s ground offensive into northern Gaza, many Palestinians have been forced to flee to UN-run schools in the vicinity of the Indonesian Hospital for protection. “People taking shelter at al-Fakhoora School in Jabalia refugee camp, many with medical issues, thought they could find shelter from the violence there. But the Israeli army seems to be sending a message: Flee to the south of the Gaza Strip,” he said. Source: AL JAZEERA
