Last night, children were killed as they slept next to their parents on the floor of a classroom in a UN-designated shelter in Gaza. Children killed in their sleep; this is an affront to all of us, a source of universal shame. Today the world stands disgraced.

United Nations officials described the killing of sleeping children as a disgrace to the world and accused Israel of a serious violation of international law after a school in Gaza being used to shelter Palestinian families was shelled on Wednesday.

At least 15 people, mostly children and women, died when the school in Jabaliya refugee camp was hit by five shells during a night of relentless bombardment across Gaza. More than 100 people were injured. Via the guardian

Take note — this isn’t a statement shot on grainy footage by Hamas terrorists toting AK-47s and standing in front of a flag in some dark hideout. These are the words of the UNITED NATIONS.

I just want you to know that you’re very special… and the only reason I’m telling you is that I don’t know if anyone else ever has.
