UNITED NATIONS, July 30, /ITAR-TASS/. The headquarters of two UN agencies in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday was shelled five times within an hour, UN undersecretary general for humanitarian affairs Valerie Amos said on Wednesday.
The headquarters of the office of the UN special coordinator for the Middle East peace process and the UN humanitarian affairs coordination office five times came under fire in the period from 01:00 a.m. to 02:00 a.m. (02:00 - 03:00 a.m., Moscow time). The only power plant in Gaza was also shelled. It is unlikely that its operation will be resumed any time soon, she said. According to her, most houses in Gaza now get electricity for only two hours per day due to the station damage.
Amos also said that another United Nations school serving as a shelter for Palestinians in Gaza was hit by shells Wednesday morning, killing children. Senior UN officials strongly condemned the attack on the school of the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). Amos said it was flagrant violation of international law.
The Israeli military offensive in Gaza, which is home to 1.8 million people, has left hundreds dead and thousands injured. Over 182,000 displaced people have now taken refuge in facilities run by the UNRWA.
